This set unites our two editions of this famous novella for the ultimate reading experience. The Jekyll Edition of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is inspired by the kind character of Dr. Jekyll. Pure, clean, strapped in white covers with silver page edges, it represents the essence of a good man. On the other hand, The Hyde Edition 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 books out of the handmade slipcases, we recommend you search for the first of the three easter eggs. Upon opening the books 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).
Each edition has its own special thing. If you look to the side of the Jekyll Edition, you’ll be met with silver page edges. When you open the Hyde Edition, 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.
Both of these books are the same content-wise, they differ only in mood set by the character they were inspired by, providing a unique reading experience depending on which is chosen first or if they are used interchangeably.
You can see more pictures of the book and the illustrations in our gallery.
Only the finest quality materials and superior production techniques have been chosen in production of these books. 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.
These books are beautiful, they might be the best-made books I own! I read through the story in one sitting, and the illustrations capture the mood perfectly. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Amaranthine come out with next, after my experience buying and reading these books, it’s already a must-buy. I can honestly say that even with several Folio Society fine editions on my bookshelves, I’ve never been so impressed with a new edition - not only does it feel absolutely premium in materials and manufacturing but the design is also really innovative and unusual. The only thing I feel is missing from this edition is an introduction, it would be lovely to have the book introduced to give you a feel for its history and impact, but this is a really minor point. Keep going like this Amaranthine! Can’t wait to see what's next!
An original edition
Both the Jekyll and Hyde editions are exquisite. Very impressed with the quality and the original design.
I received the Jekyll and Hyde two edition set today and I couldn’t be happier. They are beautiful to behold and nicely made. The subtle differences between the two editions makes it worth while to purchase both. Black on white and White on black was a genius idea. Really beautiful works!! Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing what comes next.
Jekyll and Hyde
Excellent service and nice books from a new publisher I’m sure will be a force to be reckoned with going forward.
