Description from Amaranthine Books website


Hyde Edition of the famous novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is inspired by the twisted character of Mr. Hyde. Black paper strapped in black covers, it represents the essence of a troubled man.


Once you get the book out of the handmade slipcase, it is recommended you search for the first of the three easter eggs. Upon opening the book you’ll be met with beautiful UV coating on endpapers which hide the second easter egg (if you are unable to figure out what it is, you might find a clue in the Afterword at the end of the book).

When you open the book, you’ll be met with the opposite of your usual book – white print on black paper. Upon reading you’ll notice that every chapter begins with a small chapter illustration that serves as a symbol of that chapter’s theme. Furthermore, throughout the book there are grand total of 12 illustrations by Nebojša Cvetković spanning over six important events of the book. Inspired by the main character(s), each illustration is double-sided, giving two opposite perspectives of the same event. Finally, one of the illustration hides the last easter egg – the painting of the writer of this wonderful book, Robert Louis Stevenson.


You can see more pictures of the book and the illustrations in the gallery of teh Amaranthine Books website.
