They (whoever ‘they’ are) say you should never judge a book by its cover, and yet today I received an intriguing volume in the new and stunningly realised series of re-issued books in the ‘Pulp! THE CLASSICS’ branding from Oldcastle Books.
Pulp! The Classics is a new imprint that gives the nation’s favourite classic novels original retro covers in a pulp fiction style – with a dash of wry humour. Redesigned and reset, using the original unabridged text from some of the best writers that have ever lived, Pulp! The Classics promises readers their favourite books with stunning and highly original jackets.
The series started in January 2013 with Pride & Prejudice and the other titles undergoing a pulp facelift include Robinson Crusoe, The Hound of The Baskervilles and The Great Gatsby in May 2013, followed by Wuthering Heights, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, A Christmas Carol and The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Get one and you’ll want them all.
A truly classic collection.
