Neil Gaiman's raucous comedy Anansi Boys bursts into the spotlight in an extraordinary Folio collector's edition, filled with vibrant images by artist Francis Vallejo and introduced by Afrofuturist Nalo Hopkinson

The Folio Society



"The Folio Society once again spoil it for everyone else by creating the definitive edition of a work, with all other copies now feeling redundant. My battered paperback of Neil Gaiman’s 2005 New York Times #1 bestseller is now resigned to being a ‘reading copy’, with this gloriously colourful copy now taking pride of place on the bookshelf. It boasts a psychedelic wraparound design on its slipcase, depicting a tongue bridge unfurling from Mr Nancy’s mouth. The artwork is by Francis Vallejo, and he perfectly captures the author’s mix of Caribbean legend and phantasmagoria.”
