The semi-autobiographical experimental classic, beautifully repackaged with a stunning J for Joyce on the cover. It all begins with a letter. Fall in love with Penguin Drop Caps, a new series of 26 collectible and hardcover editions, each with a type cover showcasing a gorgeously illustrated letter of the alphabet for each author's surname. J is for Joyce. From its chronicling of youthful days at Clongowes Wood school to the radical questioning of all convention and experimentation with authority and authorship, this depicts the life of Stephen Dedalus in his Dublin upbringing.

Praise for Penguin Drop Caps:
"[Penguin Drop Caps] convey a sense of nostalgia for the tactility and aesthetic power of a physical book and for a centuries-old tradition of beautiful lettering." --Fast Company
"Vibrant, minimalist new typographic covers.... Bonus points for the heartening gender balance of the initial selections." --Maria Popova, Brain Pickings
"The Penguin Drop Caps series is a great example of the power of design. Why buy these particular classics when there are less expensive, even free editions of Great Expectations? Because they're beautiful objects. Paul Buckley and Jessica Hische's fresh approach to the literary classics reduces the design down to typography and color. Each cover is foil-stamped with a cleverly illustrated letterform that reveals an element of the story. Jane Austen's A (Pride and Prejudice) is formed by opulent peacock feathers and Charlotte Bronte's B (Jane Eyre) is surrounded by flames. The complete set forms a rainbow spectrum prettier than anything else on your bookshelf." --Rex Bonomelli, The New York Times
"Classic reads in stunning covers--your book club will be dying." --Redbook
