Why did you name your blog Gilt Edge?

I knew I wanted a literary term to be the name of my blog, but I wanted it to also give a little nod to fashion. I made a really, really long list but finally settled on Gilt Edge because it focuses on the aesthetics of literature – literally the gold edge of a book. I thought it married the two subjects well.
