It hasn’t just been a big year for my book blogging experience. This year Alma publishing won Independent Publisher of the Year 2013. Now, Alma Classics have just released a new selection of stylish and elegant editions of classic books, Evergreen Classics, perfect for students and book lovers alike. They are beautifully produced with extra material, new translations and a fresh editorial approach. All are competitively priced at £4.99 and are made to last collectables.
The first four titles are:
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë – the tale of Heathcliff and Cathy’s untameable love and suffering, and the effects of their passion on their families.
The Evergreen edition includes pictures and material on Emily Brontë’s life and works.
Praise of Folly by Erasmus – a controversial and witty essay combining culture, theology and philosophy.
The Evergreen edition is a new translation and includes other works by Erasmus exclusive to Alma books.
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert – a bored woman’s quest to make her fantasies a reality have shocking consequences for herself and those around her.
The Evergreen edition contains extra reading and visual material.
The Prince by Machiavelli – a classic yet controversial study of power and politics.
The Evergreen edition includes a newly translated essay, extra reading and visual material.
More titles will be added regularly to the series after the initial launch in September.
