2013 Folio Society edition Pride & Prejudice Illustrations

The book has the freshness of a summer stream running to its inevitable happy conclusion’ ~ P. D. James

‘I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry.’ One of the world’s favourite books, Pride and Prejudice has long been regarded as a classic romance. In Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, Jane Austen created the greatest pair of sparring lovers since Shakespeare’s Beatrice and Benedick. This sparkling comedy of manners features an inimitable cast of characters including the obsequious Mr Collins, the autocratic Lady Catherine de Bourgh, and Mrs Bennet, the most embarrassing mother in literature.

The award-winning Balbusso twins have contributed eight exquisite illustrations to this edition, as well as a striking cover design. The novel’s celebrated first line is blocked in gold on the slipcase. In a new introduction, the author Sebastian Faulks praises ‘a novel of almost boundless wit and charm that has withstood film and television adaptations and attempts to define it as a “fairy tale” or a “rom-com”.’

Tommy leaves the interpretation of his work up to the viewer but says, "For me, surrealism is about trying to explain something abstract like a feeling or a thought, expressing the subconscious with a picture. The Reality Rearranged series is my first try at describing reality trough surrealism. During the two and a half years I have worked on the series I have used my own inner life, thoughts and feelings as seeds to my pictures. In that sense the work is very personal, almost like a visual diary. Despite this subjectiveness in the process I hope that the work can engage the viewer in her or his own terms. I want the viewers to produce their own questions and answers when looking at the pictures, my own interpretations are really irrelevant in this context. "

"Uno psicologo stava spiegando come gestire meglio lo stress. Quando sollevò un bicchiere d’acqua, tutto il pubblico immaginò che avrebbe posto la solita domanda: “Bicchiere mezzo pieno o mezzo vuoto?”
Quello che invece domandò fu: “Quanto credete che pesi questo bicchiere d’acqua?”
Le risposte variarono da 250 a 400 grammi.
“Il peso assoluto non conta, – replicò lo psicologo – dipende dal tempo per cui lo reggo. Se lo sollevo per un minuto, non è un problema. Se lo sostengo per un’ora, il braccio mi farà male. Se lo sollevo per tutto il giorno, il mio braccio sarà intorpidito e paralizzato. In ogni caso il peso del bicchiere non cambia, ma più a lungo lo sostengo, più pesante diventa.” E continuò: “Gli stress e le preoccupazioni della vita sono come quel bicchiere d’acqua. Se ci pensate per un momento, non accade nulla. Pensateci un po’ più a lungo e incominciano a far male. E se ci pensate per tutto il giorno, vi sentirete paralizzati e incapaci di far qualunque cosa."
