From A to Z, the Penguin Drop Caps series collects 26 unique hardcovers featuring cover art by Jessica Hische
It all begins with a letter. Fall in love with Penguin Drop Caps, a new series of twenty-six collectible and hardcover editions, each with a type cover showcasing a gorgeously illustrated letter of the alphabet. In a design collaboration between Jessica Hische and Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, the series features unique cover art by Hische, a superstar in the world of type design and illustration, whose work has appeared everywhere from Tiffany & Co. to Wes Anderson's recent film Moonrise Kingdom to Penguin's own bestsellers Committed and Rules of Civility. With exclusive designs that have never before appeared on Hische's hugely popular Daily Drop Cap blog, the Penguin Drop Caps series debuted with an 'A' for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, a 'B' for Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, and a 'C' for Willa Cather's My Antonia. Itcontinues with more perennial classics, perfect to give as elegant gifts or toshowcase on your own shelves.
J is for Joyce.From its chronicling of youthful days at Clongowes Wood school to the radical questioning of all convention and the desire to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race, James Joyce s highly autobiographical A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man portrays Stephen Dedalus in his Dublin upbringing. In doing so, it provides an oblique self-portrait of young Joyce himself. At its center lie questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. Exuberantly inventive in style, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man subtly and beautifully orchestrates the patterns of quotation and repetition instrumental in its hero s quest to create his own character, his own language, life and art: to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use silence, exile, and cunning.

Product Description:

Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Persian (Farsi) thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce was edited for three audiences. The first includes Persian (Farsi)-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL? or TOEIC? preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Persian (Farsi) speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Persian (Farsi) in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement? (AP?) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Persian (Farsi) Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Persian (Farsi) or English.
