Folio Collectables

The Folio softbound collection

When he founded The Folio Society in 1947 it was Charles Ede’s intention to create fine editions ‘worthy of the contents, at a price within reach of everyman.’ In celebration of his ethos, The Folio Society has launched a stylish new series, Folio Collectables, a selection of some of the world’s best-loved books presented in a bold new design and with, for Folio, a very unusual binding. Softbound, these are the first Folio books to be readily portable, retaining every inch of our usual quality and style.

The Folio Collectables encompass a glittering array of fiction and non-fiction. The perfect way to expand your library or introduce a fellow book-lover to Folio, this new generation will be a striking addition to any shelf.
