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.
As my review title says. Amaranthine books gave us an opportunity to choose, or simply pick both options. I myself personally went for the Hyde edition. Love the dark pages, the texture of the material and the whole visualisation of their version of Stevensons novel. When I heard about this unique edition I had to have my own personal copy. You get an opportunity to collect books that have that much attention, detail and even mystery, you develop a certain want for more. When the word got out that Amaranthine books we're working on yet another project, I got really exited. I knew they had a lot of „mad“ ideas that should get a place in writing and in physical form. As a sculptor, I see all the needed aspects; concept, the visual execution, the feeling it gives us, and inbodying it into a unique work of art. All the qualities art should have, to get a higher level of artistic value.
In summary, looking forward to new projects, more titles that should get it's signature take from Amaranthine books.
Keep up the awesome work!
An absolutely gorgeous book, in particular with the thematic presentation of the book in line with the duality of the story. Combined with the illustrations and many other small details, it is an almost ethereal experience to handle and read the book. Definitely one of the more unique books I've had the privilege of owning.
Kudos to the team for having the vision and tenacity to execute this piece of work!
Beautifully crafted book
Attention to detail is seen on so many levels in this book from amazing illustrations, design & typography, choice of paper to little hidden details. This books is beautifully crafted and is a must have item on any book lovers shelf.
This one was a punt
I hadn’t heard of Amaranthine Books till a friend tipped me off about their limited edition Dracula (which I bought) and when I visited their website I also found Jekyll and Hyde. I am a big horror fan and this book was very reasonably priced so I thought I would take a punt. I bought the Hyde edition (black). The quality is great and considering this was the company’s first release they should be applauded. The scratch marks on the cover are a nice touch although in my opinion it may have added to the effect if they could have been accented a little bit. The interior art suits the book well and the fact that the pages are black with white print all adds to the uniqueness of this book
Overall I think this is a great collectible from a fine book publisher.
