Friday find: Puffin in Bloom

You know those tech-savvy types you meet at parties, or in the office, who simply don't understand your love of print and ask, bewildered, why you still bother buying books? This is why: hand-illustrated, gold-foiled gorgeousness to have and to hold (not to simply download) forever. 

Puffin in Bloom is a collaboration between book publisher Puffin and New York-based illustrator/stationery designer Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. Together they've reproduced four literary classics that take us straight down memory lane: Little Women, A Little Princess, Anne of Green Gables and Heidi. The designs and colour palette are distinctively Rifle Paper Co - floral, vintage-inspired and utterly whimsical. We're in love.

As Amy famously declares in Little Women, "Let us be elegant or die!" We're not quite sure we feel so strongly, but we're certain she would have been as smitten by these beautiful books as we are.
