As you may have seen in my story, I recieved this book from @foliosociety a couple of days ago.
.
The book is Night by Elie Wiesel and although I do own a copy of it I just had to get this one.
.
Elie Wiesel was a Holocaust survivor and author who wrote down his testimony throughout many decades. He’s written mostly political and philosophical texts - all based on his religion (Judaism) and experiences during the Holocaust.
.
This book has a special place in my heart because it - and Wiesel himself - was the main subject of my Master’s Thesis. I was very sad when he passes away a couple of months before I turned my thesis in.

The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám is a new edition in our Autumn Collection.

The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám holds a unique place in English literature. A sensation of the Victorian age, it remains one of the best-loved poems in English.
William Morris created four versions of the Rubáiyát and we have selected the version that best exemplifies his unique and enduring style; the 1872 edition held by @britishlibrary. Each page was meticulously hand-written in calligraphy by Morris and decorated with elaborate borders, nature-inspired motifs and exquisite classical and religious figures. Our edition of one of Morris’s finest and most elaborate works is a complete facsimile of the manuscript.

Printed in lustrous gold and full-colour throughout, the cloth binding features an intricate floral gold-block design by Morris and is presented in a cloth slipcase also with gold blocking.

Five from the past. 1989-2012, Including one old New Yorker piece, that I thought was missing when I received a recent request for it to be reproduced in Australia. Typically I could find no record of the damn thing until last week...anyway it's behind glass.

SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT 💡 📚 Totally stealing this idea from @bookdreamer83 and @jimmy_eat_book and showing off some of my more aesthetically pleasing books. I have a few gorgeous folios; I only buy them if they are books I genuinely love. I’ll start with this folio edition of Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro. It is just beautiful, with foil detailing on the cover and full colour plates inside. I love the book and film 🎥

"We don't belong to each other : he's an independent, and so am I"

Breakfast at Tiffany's novella is actually very different from the movie but to me, both are good.
What is your favorite classic book ?

So what do you do on a wet Saturday afternoon strolling through the Lincolnshire town of Stamford with five one pound coins weighing your pocket down? Well, you seek dry cover in a bookshop of course. And once in you ‘get without’ (Lancashire saying) the heavy £5 by purchasing this Folio Society book of John Buchan short stories. Now I’ve only read The Thirty Nine Steps of his so I’ve yet to find out whether I should have bought the Anthony Trollope or Rudyard Kipling instead (also Folio). However, when I left the shop the rain had stopped, a milky white glow of sun was shining through the grey sky and the church bells from all four churches were ringing. Now call me a sentimentalist, a romantic, a magnificent pagan beast but I felt all right with the world. That was until I past another bookshop with more tempting books on display in the window and I was suddenly aware of my empty pockets... and it was raining again. #foliosociety #johnbuchan #stamfordlincolnshire #bookstagram #secondhandbookshop #foliobooks #shortstories

I remember being so tired on this day, but @tamlanphoto still made it work. I had insomnia and anxiety for many days in a row and school had just started. I look like my mom in this pic, but If i manage to look like this at 40, ill be happy 😂 #foliosociety #foliofever

Met the wonderful, super nice and super talented @mrdanhillier today and surprised Robin with a (very) early birthday present by his favourite author Herman Hesse - a special edition of Steppenwolf, illustrated by Dan Hillier. So chuffed to meet him! Thanks for signing it Dan!
