Thoreau: Walden
(Folio Society)


Slip case and the book on top of it. The silver letters on the spine are pressed deep into the leather.


Silver on the top edge


Some of the pictures are fold-out. The image quality is incredible.



 

Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam / translated by Edward Fitzgerald
(Folio Society - Limited Edition of 1000)


Solander box covered with fine blue buckram. This is different from the Wind in the Willows, that one is covered in linnen.


Metallic foil on the cover, a design by illustrator Niroot Puttapipat


On the top, the paper is cut and gilded. On the bottom, is is rough


The limitation page with the signature of Niroot Puttapipat, and a hand-printed engraving.


Illustrator Niroot Puttapipat did an incredible job. Absolutely on the same level as Charles van Sandwyk did on the Wind in the Willows,
but completely different in style.


Shining gold on the top.

William Shakespear: A Midsummer Night's Dream
(Folio Society - Limited Edition of 3750 prints)


The solander box


Inside the box is the leather bound book, with a cover of specially created (and unique for every book) marbled paper
The commentary volume is also in the box.


The book is printed on hand-milled paper, and printed in letterpress
(meaning actual lead letters were used in the process)

That's all for now! More in a few months time ;-)
