Hyde Edition of the famous novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is inspired by the twisted character of Mr. Hyde. Black paper strapped in black covers, it represents the essence of a troubled man.
Once you get the book out of the handmade slipcase, we recommend you search for the first of the three easter eggs. Upon opening the book you’ll be met with beautiful UV coating on endpapers which hide the second easter egg (if you are unable to figure out what it is, you might find a clue in the Afterword at the end of the book).
When you open the book, you’ll be met with the opposite of your usual book – white print on black paper. Upon reading you’ll notice that every chapter begins with a small chapter illustration that serves as a symbol of that chapter’s theme. Furthermore, throughout the book there are grand total of 12 illustrations spanning over six important events of the book. Inspired by the main character(s), each illustration is double-sided, giving two opposite perspectives of the same event. Finally, one of the illustration hides the last easter egg – the painting of the writer of this wonderful book, Robert Louis Stevenson.

Only the finest quality materials and superior production techniques have been chosen in production of this book. Also, many elements, such as the box, had to be handcrafted to guarantee top quality production. To ensure the best reading experience we used beautiful and versatile Brioni typeface.
It is important to note that since the book covers are made of Skin paper they develop a sort of patina over time that gives it character, similar to how leather behaves with time and use. This edition is coated with protection layer which means you can use a damp cloth to clean the covers and the box without fear of damaging the book.
Since we put a lot of effort into creation of our books, we like to see them delivered safe and sound (and fast!) straight into your hands. That is why we ship with DHL Express, which means the books will be trackable at all times and they’ll arrive straight into your hands (unless you state otherwise). This also means they should arrive within 3-5 business days at the latest, but they’ll usually arrive within two business days, depending at what time of the day you made your order.
Please be aware that although books are not subject to customs fee in many countries, they might be in yours. This may mean they’ll be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about customs clearance – customs rules of each country make the importer (the buyer – you!) responsible for these fees.
The book looks wonderful and is a standout while reading with its dark pages and white, almost bluish text. Its a standout on my shelf. Shipping was incredibly fast to the U.S. and was well packed. Thank you!
Jekyll and Hyde – Hyde Edition
Bought this title very soon after discovering Amaranthine Books. Really love the design of the book which with white text on black paper is the "negative" of what you normally get (Mr Hyde, indeed). Love all the different design details, with chemical formulae, broken test tube, easter eggs, etc. Also love the illustrations which set a good tone to the story. Very nice quality thoughout; very happy with the book!
A Black Gem
I have had my eyes on this book for a long time, finally went for it. The copy I received had a minor flaw, so I contacted Amaranthine Books, 45 minutes later a new copy was on its way and arrived next morning. A lot have been said about the excellent artistic craftmanship of this book, for which I completely agree, but add the dedication and level of customer service - I cannot see how it can get any better!
