A Wizard of Earthsea

Ursula K. Le Guin
Illustrated by David Lupton

A true great of the fantasy genre, the first book in the Earthsea series brims over with danger and wild magic.

‘If this is your first time reading A Wizard of Earthsea or your nth visit, drink this magic up. Drown in it. Dream it’

  1. David Mitchell

In his introduction acclaimed author and fantasy fan David Mitchell describes Ged, the young hero at the heart of this beloved fantasy story, as ’by far the most relatable to, and the least derivative wizard’, and talks of the striking originality of Le Guin’s world, an archipelago filled with bustling humanity and a solid lack of whimsy.

The endpapers of this edition feature maps drawn by Martin Sanders based on the originals by Le Guin, and The Folio Society worked closely with the author to produce illustrations that would do her creation justice; David Lupton’s deeply atmospheric paintings show Earthsea and Ged as the author intended – a place of sea and salt, a hero of light and shadow.
