As a lifelong vegetarian, I also have chosen not to wear leather or use animal products if I can manage to avoid it. So over the years I've sadly drooled over, admired, but bypassed the lovely leatherbound Barnes & Noble classic editions of my favorite dark tales. I've wanted so badly to put them on my home library bookshelves.
So I am very delighted to find out that Barnes & Noble produced these flexibound books with the same gorgeous cover designs. Now myself and other vegetarians or vegans who choose not to use animal products can add these beautiful books to our gothic libraries.
Each book in the series has flexibound foam covers, high quality paper and some sort of fancy embellishment to the edges of the paper (gilt in silver, gold, or red for the Dracula edition). They're also less expensive than their leatherbound counterparts. Let's take a look at the current crop of dark offerings:
I can't wait to see what other Flexi-Format collectible editions they come out with next!
