An enduring classic, and one that richly deserves the very special treatment of this gorgeous leather bound special limited edition designer classic from Penguin. Any collector will be delighted with this permanent edition, designed for a long life, and a really aesthetic one too. Here, at last, we have a PERFECT Special Edition, and a first edition thus. Penguin asked the brilliant leather designer, Bill Amberg, to design a six book set. Amberg chose vegetable tanned buffalo skin from 'fallen animals' - which means they died from natural causes. The skins were processed in a totally ecological way, where the water is recycled after filtering through reed beds. The resultant leather is tough and aesthetic, and, like all great leather bindings, can only improve with handling. Amberg has used Yapp binding, where the leather overlaps the exposed edges of the text block. Such bindings are limp, with rounded corners, so the leather edges protect the text block as the y soften and envelope the pages. The leather edges are beautifully sewn. Additionally, there is a tethered bookmark in the same material which bears the book's title. At the base of the leather spine is a blind embossed Penguin logo. This is a truly delightful production, and comes with a special Penguin tissue wrapping inside a blond card box. The box is then secured with a beautiful paper sash. Inside the book is a paper slip that reveals the details of the production process. This is a much coveted series, and this is the first printing thus, denoted by the '1' on the copyright page. Only 1000 copies were issued of each title, and therefore this is part of a limited luxury edition. Now becoming RARE.
