This lavish edition of the classic adventure story is bound in sumptuous burgundy goatskin leather, blocked in black and gold foils with a new design by Roman Pisarev. The top edge of each of the pages is gilded to match the gold of the foil and there is a burgundy ribbon to mark your place in this highly readable volume.
Our production team sourced the Hahnemühle Antique paper for the exclusive etchings, each hand-tipped onto the page facing the limitation piece which has been blocked in gold foil. Each etching has been printed by hand by the artist from the original brass plate so each is unique. Pisarev used Natural Sepia Lefranc & Bourgeois Charbonnel ink; when his supply ran out, it became clear that none was available in Russia so our production team sourced more from Portugal, even ink it seems is affected by the pandemic. A perfectionist, Pisarev chose to tear the borders of the etchings before signing and numbering each one. The frontispiece and 11 further fine-line illustrations, also by Pisarev, were originally created for a Folio edition of Dumas's masterpiece printed in 2001.
Full of drama, they exuberantly break the frames of the plates, perfectly reflecting the action and suspense of the narrative. This is undoubtedly the ideal edition for the discerning collector.
