The illustration team at Waterbell will be launching a new illustrated classic book range, offering beautifully illustrated editions of classics such as Pride and Prejudice, Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn, Alice in Wonderland and Treasure Island.

– Numbered by hand and strictly limited – the print run is limited to 2,000 copies, however, only 1,000 copies will be made available for this campaign.
– Unless otherwise specified, the Limited Editions contain the same key features as the Premium Limited Editions as noted below for each edition.
The illustrators behind the unique additions explain more about the project and its goals. “We are very passionate about our books and stand by our project. We believe that we set ourselves apart from other publishers by making beautiful handmade illustrated books. However, we also want all book lovers to be able to own and treasure our illustrated books. So even though we were halfway funded in the very first few days of our campaign we decided to revamp it a bit to appeal to more book lovers.
Both the Limited Editions and the Premium Limited Editions are beautifully illustrated by highly talented artists. Each edition has a wrap-around book cover design with no blurbs or barcodes to hinder the artwork. The books are illustrated with endpapers and a minimum of 6 internal full-colour illustrations. Each edition also has its own special features.
Our books are of difference sizes and widths, so that they can seamlessly fit with your current book collection, rather than stand out like a sore thumb or just be a big block on your shelf. But they are definitely more beautiful than your average book!”
