Ruben Toledo for Penguin

I'm always a sucker for prettily illustrated book covers, and will readily admit that there have been times when my choice in buying a book has been led purely by how much I like the cover.

Fashionologie reports that Ruben Toledo has taken on illustrating the covers of 3 classic books for Penguin: Pride & Prejudice, Wuthering Heights and The Scarlett Letter. This has gotten me really excited. With the assurance that the covers look fantastic and the stories within are equally fantastic, I've placed my pre-order for Pride & Prejudice (despite already owning the book) and Wuthering Heights on Amazon.
