This goes out to all the #foliofreaks . Did you know, if you type 'Folio society illustrations' within the Google search and switch to the button 'pictures', you find some of the gorgeous illustrations and download them.. they are pretty awesome as a screensaver on a mobile phone. 😍😍😍😍 #foliosociety

mabell Those are terrific! I love the snowbound train. 2mo

rubyslippersreads So many gorgeous books! I have the Brontë letters, but I still want Jane‘s. ? 2mo
Aimeesue @Sarah83 I was just thinking ‘Wow, she‘s got some newer Austen Folios,‘ because mine are the 1961-ish Folios. @LeahBergen ‘s are prettier than mine. 😂 (edited) 2mo
batsy What a collection 😍😍 2mo
Lcsmcat Beautiful editions! 2mo
ScientistSam Please! 2mo
tpixie Beautiful!!! ♥️🧡♥️ 2mo
LeahBergen @Sarah83 I do! I love the wood engraving illustrations by Joan Hassall in these editions so much. 😍 2mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads I think it‘s a necessity for your Austen shelves. 😆 2mo
LeahBergen @Aimeesue Yours are the green bindings, aren‘t they? I believe they‘re identical inside to these late 1990s ones I have (that‘s when I started buying these 😆). I prefer these editions illustrated by Joan Hassall to the newer Folio ones. Shhh! 🤫 2mo
rohit-sawant Stunning editions! 💕 2mo
Sarah83 I received one book of this collection with the Jane Austen swap. It is so gorgeous. 😍 2mo
youneverarrived Beautiful 😍 2mo
Sarah83 @Aimeesue that's sometimes the problem. Folio publishes some books so often, you don't know which edition you should buy 😍😍😍😍 2mo
Aimeesue @LeahBergen Mine are a bluish green. The spines look greenish, I think, when they fade, but the covers are definitely blue. They do have the Hassell illustrations, though, which are gorgeous. Did they change the illustrations in the newer versions? Whatever for? 2mo
Melissa_J Lovely editions 🥰 2mo
LeahBergen @rohit-sawant Thanks! They‘re some of my faves. ❤️ 2mo
LeahBergen @youneverarrived Thank you! 😘 2mo
LeahBergen @Sarah83 Do you like these editions or do you prefer the illustrations in the new editions? 2mo
LeahBergen @Aimeesue Ah, yes! I think I‘ve only seen the faded spines before. They‘re so pretty! And yes, check out the Folio site to look inside the new editions. The illustrations are a tad mod and dreamy for my liking (let me know what you think 🤫). They also released an Austen set in 2006 that‘s a wee bit ... twee, maybe? 😆 And, hey .... I‘m usually a big lover of twee-ness. 😆 2mo
LeahBergen @Melissa_J 😘😘 2mo
Sarah83 I am not really certain. I love the old ones so much. I love drawings which seams like the painter used coal for it. 😍 But the new ones are also wonderful. Can I take both? Which do you prefer? 2mo
BiblioLitten Those beauties!! 😍😍😍 2mo
kspenmoll So lovely! 2mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I can always count on you to be my enabler. 😂 2mo
