Introducing Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short stories, novellas and essays from the world’s greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith. Celebrating the range and diversity of Penguin Classics, they take us from snowy Japan to springtime Vienna, from haunted New England to a sun-drenched Mediterranean island, and from a game of chess on the ocean to a love story on the moon. Beautifully designed and printed, these collectible editions are bound in colourful, tactile cloth and stamped with foil.

A countess with a card trick; love letters filled with deception; a desperate man with a pistol.’The Queen of Spades’, one of Pushkin’s most popular and chilling stories, is accompanied here by the thrilling ‘Dubrovsky’ and unforgettable ‘Tales of Belkin’.
