The Virago Modern Classics Gift Range

To celebrate the long-standing heritage of Virago Modern Classics and the designers who made the hardback range such a success, in Autumn 2015 we launched three sets of mugs and notebooks based on some of our best loved classics. We’ve now added three new designs to the collection for 2016 – Angela Carter’s The Magic Toyshop, Molly Keane’s Good Behaviour and Highsmith’s iconic The Talented Mr Ripley.

You can buy the full range at Waterstones, online at The Literary Gift Company, and a selection of UK independent bookshops and retailers. Find the full stockist list at the link below.

‘We created our beautiful hardback series featuring covers by textile designers in 2008, to celebrate 30 years of the Virago Modern Classics. They have become a collectable, covetable part of the VMC list, with new titles being added every year. Now, for the design enthusiast and book-lover alike, we are launching a stylish range of products that brings together great literature and gorgeous artwork. A must-have for all Virago fans’ – Donna Coonan, Editorial Director, Virago Modern ClassicsALL MUGS AND NOTEBOOKS
