The generous margins, both at the sides and at the bottom, make the book easy to hold. With the thick strong paper this makes for a great reading experience. The book is large and beautiful, but not fragile. Very well made.
Punctuation and some capital letters such as W and T are allowed to protrude ever so slightly into the margins. This typographic subtlety makes the text look more straight and balanced. Amaranthine’s book designer knows what they are doing.
Sherlock Collection – Detective Edition
The Detective Edition of the Sherlock Amaranthine is everything I had hoped it would be - and more. Quality-wise it’s sublime, but also visually it’s an absolute treasure. Can’t wait for the second volume.
Beautifully done, designed and printed. Feels twice as expensive than it is. Overall look and feel luxurious. The best Sherlock Holmes book I have ever seen, and I have so many.
So this is what a well-crafted book feels like.
I stumbled upon Amaranthine Books just as they begun advertising Sherlock and purchased this for my girlfriend... who lives in Apartment 221, no less, loves everything "book", but owns no Sherlock!
From the production status updates to the packaging, I was thrilled when it arrived on-time. And when she finally opened it, loving it, and I got to see and feel the quality for myself, it was like opening a book for the first time... And that's fitting because it comes with instructions for a book's inaugural opening! Love it.
Sadly, some older editions of books I want are no longer available but I will absolutely be looking forward to all future releases from Amaranthine, and may even have to buy a Sherlock of my own (before they sell out too).
Everything about this book is fantastic. The quality of the paper, the typeset, binding and overall presentation is really amazing.
Amazing book, like all previous! so exciting! and already they have new one in pipeline! i have them all in collection and sherlock is my favorite so far!!!
This Sherlock Holmes Detective Edition is, for me, Amaranthine Books’ most impressive offering to date. Everything about it oozes style and quality - the design and materials of both the book and solander box, the artist’s brilliantly clever illustrations, the thick paper and letterpress printing, the overall creative concept - all combine to produce what is quite simply a work of art in its own right.
Bravo Amaranthine Books!
Amaranthine books never fail to impress. So glad they are committed to releasing these more accessible copies, because I love their work, but my pockets aren't deep enough to get the higher end stuff!
Just beautiful. It feels so heavy because of the fine paper of the book. Print and the pictures are fantastic. Can't wait for the Dectective Edition.
Oh, and the magnifying glass is a nice touch.
Wonderful production quality. Absolutely knocked it out of the park!
Amaranthine Books have created a wonderful and unique work of art.
Not only is it a book but the artwork, page layout, headings for each chapter are beautifully unique.
It is also printed in letterpress and the artistic concept pays immense credit to everybody involved in the design, creation, marketing, manufacture of this wonderful novel.
I love the case which perfectly holds the novel, matching the colour scheme and texture. Additionally, the inside covers emulate the Victorian walls of the housing interiors, giving it that ‘old fashioned’ look and feel. Everything about this work of art shows that Amaranthine Books are wonderfully unique in the high end book world and I just love it residing on my bookshelf , witnessing the gorgeous textual structure.
Nice all around book. I really liked the nice heavy paper. Very good value!
AB’s first letterpress is a smashing success and stands out like no other. A pure joy to read. Considering this is ABs first letterpress and first standard edition/essential edition to be published, it is a must for any serious collector library. So happy I discovered Amaranthine!
Incredible workmanship from this press. Beautiful, high production work which shows the passion Amaranthine has for quality. I love the books this press makes!
