Fancy New Editions of Emma, The Secret Garden, and More Are Now on Sale
By Elaine Selna
We all have that one piece of classic literature that continues to inspire us, despite how many times we've read it cover to cover. And while the stories themselves (thankfully) never change, that hasn't stopped limited-edition covers and other collectible versions of famed novels from hitting shelves.
Now, publisher Thomas Nelson is giving some of these classics a fresh look with its "Spring" collection, complete with gorgeous new covers for titles like Emma by Jane Austen, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo.
The publisher has already revamped other classics for its "Winter" and "Summer" lines, and this one promises to be just as exclusive. There will only be 10,000 copies made of each title, and they'll all be numbered for authenticity. Each one features a green laser-cut top cover, with a unique second cover underneath. The cuttings are designed to bring a scene from the book to life, like an intricate recreation of Notre Dame cathedral for Hunchback or a behind-the-back look at Sherlock Holmes, pipe and all.
To explore the whole Spring edition collection, head on over to Amazon.
