Beautiful illustrated SciFi-Classics

Ich habe grade durch die Illus von Andrew Archer von The Folio Society erfahren, ein Verlag, der unter anderem Klassiker der SciFi-Literatur in aufwändigen und illustrierten Ausgaben veröffentlicht. Grade neu am Start: Philip K. Dicks Android-Sheep und A Scanner Darkly als Doppelausgabe.

Archer hat die Scanner-Hälfte der Ausgabe illustriert, Chris Skinner übernahm die Illu von Do Android Dream Of Electric Sheep? und jetzt würde ich gerne den Laden der Folio Society leerkaufen, weil look at this:

A Folio book is a unique object, one in which typography, illustration, paper, and printing and binding techniques all play a part in creating a harmonious whole. The Folio Society has celebrated the particular joy to be derived from owning, holding and reading a beautiful printed edition. Our aim is to create books that are unique in their aesthetic and in their quality – this is what makes a Folio collection something to cherish.

In the digital age, information is served to us instantaneously. Success is measured by speed, and we can dispose of the written word at the click of a mouse. This is why Folio books are the perfect tonic. We offer the reader an opportunity to pause and reflect; to spend time appreciating beauty and wisdom. The books we select for publication are timeless – and in the editions we produce, they will be enjoyed and valued now and in generations to come.
