The Little Prince
Commentary Volume by Christine Nelson
A definitive two-volume edition of Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince featuring his original and unforgettable illustrations.
All grown-ups were children first. (But few of them remember it)
The little prince lived on a very small planet, hardly any bigger than a house. Lonely on his tiny world, one day the prince, catching hold of a migration of wild birds, left on a journey across the stars to learn life’s mysteries of love, loss and beauty in a universe corrupted by grown-up logic. First published in 1943, and since translated into 270 languages and 26 different alphabets, few books have touched the world like Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s modern fable The Little Prince. In its first Folio edition, this definitive two-volume production includes a new introduction by Saint-Exupéry’s biographer and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Stacy Schiff, as well as restored versions of Saint-Exupéry’s unforgettable illustrations, as inseparable from the story as the words themselves.
This edition won the Literature category at the British Book Design and Production Awards 2018.
