On May the 8th I was delighted to help launch the Folio Society’s limited edition of Victor Hugo’s Toilers of the Sea.


Having lobbied and cajoled for over a year in order to persuade Folio to publish the first ever edition illustrated with Hugo’s own illustrations, I was especially thrilled that we were able to launch the book in Hauteville House in Guernsey. I should thank the Guernsey Evening press for all their support and for this picture of the book, lying on the desk where Hugo wrote it!


I am also thrilled that Folio have already sold over 900 of the 1250 copies available, if you want one click this link, don’t delay it will sell out soon.
