A fine edition of the celebrated limited edition, featuring an additional binding illustration by Quentin Blake.
In 2011, The Folio Society produced a limited edition of Voltaire’s Candide. Featuring illustrations by Quentin Blake and an introduction by Julian Barnes, it proved to be enormously popular and became one of the fastest-selling titles in Folio history. In response to overwhelming demand, Candide has been reissued in a new format, so that more readers can experience this uniquely pleasing combination of author and illustrator. The cloth binding, designed by Quentin Blake, is blocked with a new illustration by the artist. The introduction by acclaimed author Julian Barnes examines the seismic impact of Candide in Voltaire’s own time, and its relevance to this day.
