First-edition copies of books, especially the classics, are highly sought-after collector's items—and they usually tout an astronomical price tag to go along with them. For anyone unwilling to part with that kind of money, New York City-based designer and photographer Mister Arthurious makes these unique covers more accessible by offering them as wall prints at Uncommon Goods for $65 each.

Mister Authurious/Uncommon Goods

The high-quality scans of the original first-edition covers of beloved novels are displayed inside birch wood shadow boxes, and you can choose from Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, the peacock-feathered cover of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and dozens more. The shadow boxes measure in at 12.25 inches by 16.25 inches and are ready to be displayed on your walls or lined up on top of a bookshelf.

The covers themselves come from Mister Arthurious’s own archive of books that he has collected over the years, and the scans are so crisp that every bit of wear and tear on the cover is visible.

To learn more about the wall prints, head on over to Uncommon Goods.
