Puffin in Bloom

4 September 2014

Have y’all SEEN the new Puffin in Bloom books by Rifle Paper Co? They are perfection.




I love almost everything Anna does, and these books are no exception. I think they’re even prettier than the Penguin Classics! Anne of Green Gables is one of my very favorite books (I made an inspiration board here!), and I also love A Little Princess. I actually don’t think I’ve ever read Heidi or Little Women, so I guess that gives me an excuse to buy the books! :) They’re definitely going on my Christmas list.

All four books are available on Rifle’s site for $16 or for about $11 on Amazon.


P.S. All of these photos are from Anna’s instagram stream – so neat to see the paintings that became the covers!

P.P.S. My brother-in-law is Anna’s literary agent! So proud of him, too :)

What a fun connection you have to this project! :) My sweet mother in law knew that my sister and law and I were obsessed with these… so the day they came out she texted me “order them on my card for Santa!!!” :) I’m so excited to see them in person, such a beautiful heirloom item!

Just ordered all 4 – these covers are absolutely to die for! Can’t wait to relive my childhood and then display these beauties.

Love them! But my problem is that I have well-worn paperback copies of all of them from when I was younger. I don’t think I can get rid of them, there are too many memories in those pages. Maybe I can get these new copies for a future daughter that can be hers. And how cute would they look displayed in a nursery?

I LOVE these new covers, too, and I also wrote a blog post about them last week. They are so beautiful!!! Anne of Green Gables, A Little Princess, and Little Women are three exceptional books (I don’t think I’ve ever actually read Heidi!), and I can’t wait to own these!

These are beautiful! I geeked out when I saw them on her IG. I’ve decided they would make the perfect coffee table novels and I want them all!

What? You’ve never read Little Women? I am shocked! You will love it. I wish we could have a book club that had us go back and read old classics from our childhood. I am sure there are plenty of good classics that I never read and MANY more that I would gladly re-read!!

Anne of Green Gables is one of my absolute favorites as well! I mean, with quotes like this, who could not love it?!?
“I won’t say another word- not one. I know I talk too much, but I am really trying to overcome it, and although I say far too much, yet if you only knew how many things I want to say and don’t, you’d give me some credit for it.”
Oh, Anne with an e, you are as wonderful as you always hoped you would be!
And, Em, I love the idea of adding these to a Christmas list! I hope to give and receive them this holiday season!

These are beautiful! I love Anna’s work and would love to have these grace my bookshelves someday. Thank you for sharing :)

LOVE! We are so excited to see this project come to fruition. Heidi was my book report in the fourth grade, for which I baked a basket of dinner rolls from scratch!

Kristin, I am totally down for a book club, especially if these Rifle books are required :)
