A Beautifully Illustrated Literary Classic!

20 December 2010

It’s not too late! If, like Grazia Daily, you have only just remembered a whole collection of family members to buy presents for, then fear not because the Grazia Daily gift guide is here to help, with a selection of products that can be purchased online and delivered before the big day right up until Christmas eve. Royal Mail snow issues notwithstanding.

One of Grazia Daily’s favourite books, Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray, has been re-imagined by illustrator Donald Urquhart using images of Bette Davis as Thackeray’s leading lady, scheming Becky Sharp. Urquhart illustrates the story with Bette as Becky, using images from Davis’ career to reflect Thackeray’s satire of 19th Century English society. Literary and beautiful? Yes pleeeease. 

£16.99, published by Four Corners Press, and available from Waterstones online with next day or standard delivery options.
