About Us


‘A Folio Society edition is, I reckon, as excellent an
accolade as any author can achieve these days’
Stephen Fry

The Folio Society is a unique and proudly independent publisher. We make some of the most beautiful books in the world,
available exclusively at foliosociety.com.

Folio publishes a broad range of exceptional books, choosing existing titles from the world’s great works of fiction and non-fiction.
These books are the best within their genre: informed, imaginative and intelligent writing which appeals to a curious mind.

Our editions are exquisitely crafted. Each is a work of art, thoughtfully curated and beautifully presented for our worldwide
community of book lovers. Folio designs each book to make sure it contains everything the reader could want from an edition.
We embrace traditional, long-lasting bookbinding and craft techniques, and combine these
with innovative design and cutting-edge
production methods and technology.

Whether it be commissioning award-winning illustrations or an insightful introduction, researching a new picture selection, or creating a
gorgeously designed and impeccably edited hardback book, Folio sets the standard in modern fine-book publishing.

In December 2021, The Folio Society became an Employee Ownership Trust – a company owned by its employees via the Trust, whose only beneficiaries are those who work in the business. This reflects Folio’s commitment to social enterprise and employee well-being.

Folio editions are made for book lovers, by book lovers.
