Virago Modern Classic hardback collection

Cast your mind back a few years, and you may remember the Virago modern classic range: hardback titles, decorated with fantastic patterns from the likes of Cath Kidston and Orla Kiely. Well, that formula was obviously so successful, they've done it again, this time giving the deluxe treatment to five further titles. 

Books are married to designers of a suitable style or era. Elaine Dundy's 1958 The Dud Avocado is decorated by a distinctive Lucienne Day pattern, while Elizabeth Jenkin's The Tortoise and the Hare is paired with a Florence Broadhurst design. Contemporary designers who work in a retro style are also included: the other covers are decorated by Angie Lewin, Eley Kishimoto and Neisha Crosland.

Beautiful by themselves, or on their own, the books are priced at £13 each.

Typical of Eley Kishmimoto's simple, timeless style, these shades will last you through this season and beyond.
