Press Release: Folio Collectables
NEW from The Folio Society
‘Editions of the world’s great literature, in a format worthy of the contents, at a price within the reach of everyman’
CHARLES EDE, Founder of The Folio Society
In celebration of our founder’s principal ambition, The Folio Society is proud to introduce a new series: Folio Collectables, titles carefully selected from the best-loved books in literature and produced with our traditional attention to detail and high production standards. With soft covers featuring bold new designs, these easily portable volumes are available for Christmas 2015 and retail at just £19.95. They are perfect to add to your own library or to introduce someone to the joy of owning editions from The Folio Society.
For the first time, this exciting new range presents Folio production and editorial values in a fresh and modern flexible binding. The books are printed sheet-fed, sewn in 16 page sections, cloth-bound and foilblocked, and feature head- and tail-bands, marker ribbons, coloured tops, two-colour title pages and black-and-white illustrations throughout sourced from our unique archive to ensure they carry the look and feel expected from Folio. Designed by our award-winning art department and production team, this new generation of collectable volumes will be a striking addition to any bookshelf and can be enjoyed anywhere at any time.
Starting with four essential titles – The Hound of the Baskervilles, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Frankenstein and A Christmas Carol – the Folio Collectables will grow to encompass a glittering array of thoughtfully curated fiction and non-fiction titles.
Editorial Director, Tom Walker, says: ‘I am delighted with this new series. It clearly demonstrates our commitment to Charles Ede’s founding principle for The Folio Society, to produce “editions of the world’s great literature, in a format worthy of the contents, at a price within the reach of everyman”. The books maintain our dedication to the highest editorial, artistic and production standards at an attractive price.’
