Discussion Question #5

Pretending for a minute that all Persephone titles were available in both the grey covers and the Classics editions, which would you prefer to collect?

    1. I really enjoy both too, Fran. I love all the different artwork featured on the Classics, but there is something to be said for the simple elegance of the plain grey covers. I’m happy to collect a bit of both styles.

    1. I’m right there with you, Karen! It would be the dream to have room (and the budget) for a complete set of BOTH the Classics and the grey covers!


  1. I’ll be honest and say I hate the grey covers – I think they’re the most boring book covers out there, even more boring than school textbooks! I’d never buy one, especially since so many of the novels are available free online and I don’t feel the books would aesthetically enhance my bookshelves. So I guess you could put me down as preferring the classic covers, even though I’m not really aware of what they’re like… 😉

    1. That’s a completely valid opinion, FictionFan! I can certainly see how the simplicity of the covers could be viewed as boring by many people. Taken individually, they’re not my favorite cover designs, but there’s something about a group of the grey covers that I find really elegant. The uniquely patterned endpapers help to spice things up too.

      The Classics covers all feature a different painting that relates to the time period and theme of the book. Each one is very different, but they still look nice sitting next to each other on the shelf.
