Luxurious new edition of Michael Endes "The Neverending Story"

To mark the 75th anniversary of The Folio Society, the English translation of Michael Ende's The Neverending Story has been published in a lavish luxury edition, beautifully illustrated by Marie-Alice Harel, an award-winning artist with a flair for the fantastical.

In the run-up to the anniversary, the publisher had its readers vote on which book they would like to see in a collector's edition – and the choice clearly fell on Bastian's Adventures in Fantastica.

The resulting luxury edition is a feast for bibliophiles: printed in two colours throughout, it captivates with more than 30 line drawings integrated into the text, eight large-scale colour illustrations, coloured initials before each chapter and elaborately designed endpapers. The page-edges are refined with a surrounding illustration, and the binding is made of shimmering, copper-coloured art silk.
