Vintage Classics love nothing more than to marry exceptional books with exquisite design. The V&A is celebrating British creative talent with its prestigious exhibition British Design 1948-2012. Vintage Classics asked seven designers featured in the V&A's exhibition to rethink the cover art for the most unforgettable, ground-breaking and life-changing British novels of the last seven decades.

I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith
Cover design by Celia Birtwell

Cassandra Mortmain lives with her bohemian and impoverished family in a crumbling castle in the middle of nowhere. Her journal records her life with her beautiful, bored sister, Rose, her fadingly glamorous stepmother, Topaz, her little brother Thomas and her eccentric novelist father who suffers from a financially crippling writer's block. However, all their lives are turned upside down when the American heirs to the castle arrive and Cassandra finds herself falling in love for the first time.

Review:

"This rite of passage story about a precocious teenager and her eccentric family is romantic, off-beat and totally magical" (Red)

"I know of few novels that inspire as much fierce lifelong affection in their readers" (Joanna Trollope)

"Everyone I've passed it on to has found it a hit - it works every time, for absolutely everybody" (Nigella Lawson)

"This book has one of the most charismatic narrators I've ever met" (J K Rowling)

"Smith rivals Nancy Mitford's Love in a Cold Climate series for 1930s toff charm" (Katy Guest The Independent)
