Suzanne Dean On Designing The New Vintage Russian Classics Series

As the nights draw in and the days become crisp, what better texts to turn to than the Russian Classics? It just so happens, Vintage have released an absolutely exquisite new Russian Classic Series: six canonical texts in striking new covers. 
We are honoured that Waterstones is the only bookshop to stock the books before their general release in January. The creator of these stunning designs, Suzanne Dean, Creative Director at Vintage, has been kind enough to give us an exclusive peek into her creative process.

Q & A: Graeme Macrae Burnet

Q & A: Graeme Macrae Burnet

Posted on 25th Oct, 2016 by Sally Campbell

It’s not our place as booksellers to be partisan over awards: being independently-minded – at least until the award has had its moment – is part of the job.

The presence of Graeme Macrae Burnet on the Man Booker shortlist, however, has forced us to test this position. As one of our own – that is, an ex-Waterstones bookseller – Burnet has not just joined that grand alumnus of booksellers into print, but now finds himself on the very precipice of potentially bagging the biggest and most prestigious prize in literary fiction. By this evening, we will know and we can’t help but feel a certain sense of pride and anxiety.

Last week, Waterstones Online’s Martha Greengrass caught up with Burnet to discuss the construction of His Bloody Project, the novel under such scrutiny, and the place where research stops and narrative begins.
