Sam Weber posted some images of the illustrated edition of Lord of the Flies and they’re absolutely stunning. Working with The Folio Society he was able to illustrate key scenes in the book, giving an intense reality to the classic book. I know that if I would have read this book in high school with these images I would have been a hell of a lot more interested in it. I’m a very visual person and this would have absolutely filled in all the blanks for me.
Sadly, you have to be a member of The Folio Society to buy the book, otherwise I would purchase this in a heartbeat. You can click here to see more images of the book on Sam’s site.
