'A small house making big books' - Folio Society profiled by Financial Times

Lord Gavron reveals what makes Folio unique

FT reporter (and Folio member) Richard Milne highlights The Folio Society in a profile of smaller publishers in the Financial Times. The article includes an interview with Robert Gavron, our chairman, in which he describes the unique nature of Folio and the rationale behind the wide selection of books, from Boethius and Vita Sackville-West to P.G. Wodehouse and Richard Dawkins: As Lord Gavron says, 'What we want is for our members to have the opportunity to be widely read across the whole scene ... The model is that our members discover things. They want a balanced diet.'

The article highlights the benefits of Folio's membership structure, a commitment which enables us to maintain such an eclectic publishing list - 'For every Dickens or Austen book, it has published works such as Plutarch or the short stories of William Trevor.' Reference is also made to our limited edition range and its intrinsic value, with editions such as the Luttrell Psalter and The Wind in the Willows found on the open market at considerably more than their published price.
