Fantastic Folio Boxed Set of The Farseer Trilogy

My effort at photography can't really do this edition justice.  The Farseer Trilogy Boxed set, illustrated by David Palumbo, from The Folio Society.

If you are a reader who thinks of your books as your 'library' rather than as your stack of books, you are probably already aware of The Folio Society.  For many years, they have been crafting heritage editions of beloved books.  Often they reissue replicas of classic, long out of print, beloved editions.  For example, their forthcoming offering of Grimms' Fairy Tales with the Arthur Rackham illustrations. Or a lavish edition of Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes.  


So I am honored to join the ranks of authors whose work has been recognized with a Folio edition.  In my case, it is The Farseer Trilogy that is now available as a Folio boxed set.  These ones are illustrated by noted artist David Palumbo.  The three books of the trilogy are protected by a sturdy red case that matches the covers of the books.  I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that they have that wonderful 'new book smell' that we all cherish!


David and I had jointly signed 250 copies of this beautiful set.  Those instantly sold out on the first day they were offered.  But the unsigned edition is still available.  The Farseer Trilogy in this boxed set will last your lifetime and, like other Folio editions in our family library, will be something you can pass on to your children and grandchildren.  


I feel honored to see my work in this form.  I hope you will look at some of the other available titles on their website.
