Vintage Penguin Mini Library


Six beautiful vintage paperback books for your collection. Penguin classics are a great addition to any book lover, and this unique literary gift is bound to delight any avid reader! 

Better than half a dozen roses any day! Your books will be gift wrapped in our beautiful vintage map inspired paper. Your books will be selected at random, they will mostly be orange but sometimes we have a few other colours too! You won't know what you're getting but that simply adds to the charm! 

Pelican books (they have beautiful blue covers) may occasionally feature in your mini library too! 

For a lower price, we also have the option of choosing six vintage books with more wear and tear to them. These would be great for craft projects, scrapbooking, and are still very readable. The wear and tear in the books tends to be creased covers, sticker marks, or loose pages. An example image is shown in the last photograph. 

Our books are all vintage, and some do have more ‘literary laughter lines’ than others. They all show signs of love, but on our wear and tear option, this is significantly more obvious.

Made from:

Vintage books, some of which are a little more delicate than others!

Our lovely friends in the EU might like to know that have managed to put measures in place to collect taxes at the point of checkout, so purchases from our Etsy store won't be subject to further fees on arrival in the EU. Not all of our products are on there because some are not eligible to be sold on Etsy but most are.
