Jekyll Edition of the famous novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is inspired by the kind character of Dr. Jekyll. Pure, clean, strapped in white covers with silver page edges, it represents the essence of a good 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).
If you look to the side of the book, you’ll be met with silver page edges. 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 the Amaranthine Books website.
