“Great books should be outstanding not only in literary content but also in their physical form”
I was delighted this week to receive a stunning gift from The Folio Society. Nestled in an ordinary cardboard box, I discovered four finely crafted editions of The Wind in The Willows, The Handmaiden’s Tale, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and The Lord of the Flies. Elegantly presented in in individual slipcovers, each book has a stunning hardcover design and is beautifully illustrated.
The Folio Society publishes hundreds of titles covering fiction, history, biography, science, philosophy, children’s literature, humour, myths and legends and more. They would make wonderful keepsake gifts for a child or a thoughtful gift for a booklover.
Do you own any fine editions? Would you like to?
