Inventive tales of the past exploring histories we think we know.

From Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5 to Rose Tremain’s Restoration, Adam Thorpe’s Ulverton to Walter Scott’s Waverley, and beyond, each book in the Vintage Past series takes you back to stories gone by… this time to be revisited with fresh eyes. As a visual representation of these nine matchless titles, the books’ covers feature the traditional pattern-making technique of marbling. The result: striking and completely unique artworks, inside and out.
