Now that gift season is upon us, we’re eyeing our bookshelves unhappily. In our opinion, everyone could use a few more hardcovers. After all, a good book is nice, but good binding is fantastic.
This pale calves’ leather edition comes from Penguin Books and Bill Amberg—and Raymond Chandler, if you want to split hairs. Naturally, we recommend The Big Sleep, but the full range includes five of Amberg’s other favorites, including *Brideshead Revisited* and *A Room with a View*.
You can pull it off the shelf when your Kindle goes on the fritz.
