Frankenstein & Folios LE handling

Muokkaaja: huhtikuu 13, 2:45 pm

Hey again,
sorry for bombing so much topics, but I find it very hard sometimes to search for the specific knowledge I seek 😅
1. Maybe a stupid question, but what do you think about an reprint of Frankenstein? Since its an quite famous book the odds are in my favour? I sadly missed out on this beautiful book.

2. How is Folio handling their LE ?
Most fine presses I know do an LE once in lifetime and not ever again .
I don't know how Folio handles this.
I found an Folio LE Lord of the Rings volume of the year ~2003.
Total different style to the 2022 version ( which is good, otherwise the LE would be scam 😅)
So besides LoTR are there any books that got a new LE volume years after the old one ?

Best regards

If you haven't yet done so, it would be a good idea to spend some time looking at this group's own wiki pages found here:

There's no rule against returning to a text and producing a second, altogether different, limited edition, but I think the only two instances from Folio so far are Lord of the Rings, as you mention, in 2008 and 2022, and Ulysses. 2004 and 2022. So there may be one or two more in the next decade or so, or there may not, and the field of likely candidate titles is very small.

>4 antinous_in_london: And not letterpress like the individual plays. The letterpress printed individual plays are truly fine press (and fine binding).

>5 ultrarightist: Given the price I assume they’ll charge for the new Shakespeare LE (if they can get away with charging £500 for the Turn of The Screw LE the sky is the limit), if it had also been letterpress people may have needed to take out a second mortgage !
