There are many people trading in books for the latest e-reader for convenience, but there are others who enjoy the feeling of holding a book in their hand. Very few in the publishing industry take pride in the production and binding of books, which could be that ‘it’ factor for print media to be sustainable in a technologically driven society. The Folio Society, publishers of illustrated books since 1947, takes pride and care in providing the reading enthusiast with something special to hold in their hands.
The Folio Society offers an artistic experience for the reader with "exquisite binding and fine typography" for each book. This may very well draw more readers to read physical books rather than their e-version counterpart. Craftsmanship is important to the Folio Society, where they use traditional methods to provide a range of quality books appealing to all types of book lovers.
It does not matter whether it is one of The Folio Society's standard or limited edition books: a certain amount of care goes into each published book making it an exceptional possession for anyone. Illustrated books published by the Folio Society have “specially commissioned artwork” providing readers, young and old with “beautiful and authoritative editions of great literary works”. By reproducing these literary works, The Folio Society has maintained a tradition of providing “the utmost care to ensure the highest quality…to best suit the character of the work”.
