Believe it or not, I don't receive any sort of compensation from Anthropologie. The store just tends to be my holiday headquarters so it's inevitable that it pops up here frequently in November and December. And I realize that the clothbound Penguin classics are getting a lot of press but I love the idea of pairing a canvas-covered edition of Great Expectations with a DVD of the 1998 movie which was vaguely based on Charles Dickens' tale.
Many visually oriented people appreciate the aesthetic aspects of the film; giving the novel along with the movie might inspire someone to revisit the original story. Green Havisham-esque gift wrap seems in order here. Maybe something with frayed or vintage ribbon.
Velvet ribbon is from Etsy; solid green paper is from Kate's Paperie. Portrait on movie poster is by Francesco Clemente. Book images are from Anthropologie. Click here for a related past post and here to learn more about the film's art direction.
