Bold & Brilliant ~ Australian Classics

Posted February 20, 2013

I love the current trend of publishers scouring the archives and reprinting treasures from the past. Too many classics are never enough! Harper Collins is the latest to resurrect an interesting array of titles (which to be fair, have been available in rather ordinary editions for awhile). Originally published under the iconic Angus & Robertson imprint, these are beautiful paperback editions all newly reset so the printing sits nicely on the pages.  March sees the first 12 titles (some of which had been turned into successful mini-series or films) and there will be more in August.
