‘K’ is for Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees

The Secret Life of Bees debuted May 7, 2013 as part of a collectible new series of books from Penguin Classics. Known as Penguin Drop Caps, the series is composed of twenty-six hardcover editions of fine works of literature, each featuring on its cover a gorgeously illustrated letter of the alphabet. The series features unique cover art by Jessica Hische, a superstar in the world of type design and illustration. Penguin Drop Caps debuted earlier this year with an ‘A’ for Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, a ‘B’ for Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, and continues with other perennial classics from Penguin.
