Waterstones Says

The seminal, sole novel from the incomparable Sylvia Plath available in a stunning Liberty fabric edition from 1963, the year of the book’s publication. Absorb The Bell Jar’s unique atmosphere anew with this gorgeously produced volume.

Liberty fabric covered editions bring classics from the Faber backlist together with important modern titles, putting them in conversation and celebrating both the history and the future of Faber & Faber.

Sylvia Plath's groundbreaking semi-autobiographical novel offers an intimate, honest and often wrenching glimpse into mental illness. The Bell Jar broke the boundaries between fiction and reality and helped cement Sylvia Plath's place as an enduring feminist icon.

Celebrated for its darkly humorous, razor sharp portrait of 1950s society, it continues to resonate with readers today as testament to the universal human struggle to claim one's rightful place in the world. 

About the Fabric:

Originally inspired by an impression sheet from Liberty's print works at Merton Abbey. First produced in 1961, this low-colour geometric design features abstract broken lines which almost create a subtle and wavy camouflage effect.

Given the somewhat legendary status of this book, I have been putting off reading it for awhile but having read it I really wish I had read it sooner. It deserves its reputation wholly and completely and then some.... More
