Eureka! Folio

Have you ever had the pleasure of exploring The Folio Society's menagerie of books? They literally exist solely to "create beautiful editions of the world's greatest books". Personally, I am coveting The Complete Miss Marple Short Stories by Agatha Christie. Isn't the art fun and quirky?

  3. I was given a Folio Books edition of Lord of the Flies as a present when I left my last job. It is definitely my Most Beautiful Book. The colour illustrations throughout are gorgeous!

  16. I hope you enjoy the series. I haven't read enough from Agatha Christie - just a couple of books. So, I should change that. :)
