Pretty literature.

In order to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Puffin, six classics have had their covers undergo a designer makeover. My favourite is the ornate 3D cover for The Secret Garden, designed by illustrator Lauren Chid:

Other titles receiving makeovers are: Oliver Twist by artist Sir Peter Blake; James and the Giant Peach by sculptor Antony Gormley; Treasure Island by architect and sculptor Frank Gehry; Around the World in Eighty Days by architect David Adjaye; Little Women by fashion designer Orla Kiely. The books go on sale from 2nd September at £100 each. With only 1,000 copies of each title available, snap yours up swiftly.
