#2. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde – Amaranthine Books
“We merely want to give these books the form that they deserve. We meticulously search for the right concept that inspires the art of the book.”
A legacy in word is perhaps still the closest we are to ascertaining immortality. Holy texts written thousands of years ago still inform people how to live their lives to this day. Amaranthine Books want to make sure the strength of the written word never wanes by combining classic texts with vivid illustrations. Their first crowdfunded attempt is The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. In their own words, Amaranthine Books “find the concept inside the book. The story is analysed, the conditions in which it was written” and, from here, add flesh to bone. With a theme rooted in duality, Jekyll and Hyde arrives in 2 styles, littered with the most beautifully executed of dark and haunting images.
