Ovid’s epic poem is brought together with Titian’s paintings for the first time in this landmark publication.

Limited Edition

First published 2,000 years ago, Ovid’s epic poem of men and gods has inspired poets and artists through the ages. In the 16th century, the Italian master Titian created a series of sublime paintings based on scenes from Metamorphoses. In this Folio Society limited edition, all of these paintings are published with the poem for the first time.
