Dear Penguin, Please reprint Crime and Punishment (ISBN 9780140455687)!

This petition made change with 887 supporters!


On the 1st of November 2008 Penguin Books released the beautiful Clothbound Classics book series. One of the titles, Crime and Punishment*, caused problems with the printing press and had to be hand foiled. As a result, there was only one printing run, which made it a very rare book. And, even if you do manage find it, let’s be honest, you are neither rich nor willing enough to buy an overpriced, beaten-up, second-hand copy from eBay, which will probably be spotty and smelly too.

Are you annoyed and frustrated every time you look at your bookshelves to see that one book missing? We are too! So, in a final effort to charm Penguin into reprinting Crime and Punishment, even if it might be in a slightly altered version to accommodate their printing press, let’s work together! Please sign this petition today. It might not be of the most earth shattering importance, but it will make a lot of readers and collectors happy. Thank you!
