Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

<div> <p><b>The coveted and award-winning Penguin Threads series continues with three more enchanting, beautifully sewn covers by a talented visual artist</b></p> <p>With paper and pen or needle and thread, storytelling has many traditions. Penguins award-winning art director Paul Buckley presents Penguin Threads, a series of Penguin Classics Deluxe Editions inspired by the aesthetic of handmade crafts with specially commissioned cover art. Jillian Tamakis embroidered artwork appears on <i>The Secret Garden</i> by Frances Hodgson Burnett, <i>Emma</i> by Jane Austen, and <i>Black Beauty</i> by Anna Sewell. This latest set features three beloved classics for both adults and children with cover art by painter and illustrator Rachell Sumpter.</p> <p>Sketched in a traditional illustrative manner, the final covers are sculpt embossed and present full front and reverse hand-stitched designs. Through story, style and texture, the Penguin Threads is an exciting chapter in Penguins long history of excellence in book design, for true lovers of the book, design, and handcrafted beauty.</p> <br /> <p>This fully annotated volume collects three of Baums fourteen Oz novels in which he developed his utopian vision and which garnered an immense and loyal following. <i>The Wizard of Oz</i> (1900) introduces Dorothy, who arrives from Kansas and meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, and a host of other characters. <i>The Emerald City of Oz</i> (1910) finds Dorothy, Aunt Em, and Uncle Henry coming to Oz just as the wicked Nome King is plotting to conquer its people. In Baums final novel, <i>Glinda of Oz</i> (1920), Dorothy and Princess Ozma try to prevent a battle between the Skeezers and the Flatheads. Tapping into a deeply rooted desire in himself and his loyal readers to live in a peaceful country which values the sharing of talents and gifts, Baums imaginative creation, like all great utopian literature, holds out the possibility for change. Also included is a selection of the original illustrations by W. W. Denslow and John R. Neill.</p> </div
