Folio Society edition is lovely
on 21 February 2015
Anyone thinking of buying this title must already know what the story entails, so I won't bother with that. What I WILL review is the physical quality of this particular edition.
I have just bought the 13th printing (2013) of the 1996 Folio Society edition. As usual, the paper and the cover are beautiful, and the slip-case is good and sturdy. The illustrations are in pen and ink and remind me of illustrations in children's books back when I was little, 60 years ago.
If I were to be nit-picking, I should say that the shape of the page is just a tad too long and not quite wide enough to be optimally comfortable in the hand.
The typeface is, it goes without saying, extremely legible and a joy to read.
