Christmas Gift Bag (Vintage, 2012)

Notes on this edition: Gift Bag distributed by Vintage to its employees at Christmas in 2012. The bag features ornamental rules designed in the shape of a Christmas tree to both sides. The bags contained three books published by Vintage or Jonathan Cape: a copy of Ford Madox Ford’s The Good Soldier (Vintage Books, 2010), Julian Barnes’s A Life with Books (Jonathan Cape, 2012), and his collection of essays Through the Window (Vintage Books, 2012). This bag was sent by Barnes to his bibliographer with a special inscription from the author.
