Introduced by Ali Smith, this is a re-imagining of the wonderfully bonkers, truly innovative and still very much culturally relevant Don Quixote. With newly commissioned photography by Jacob Robinson and beautiful design by Fraser Muggeridge, here we champion the book for its progressive fantasy-laden story and collapsible narrative and celebrate Don Quixote as a contemporary classic cultural object.
Our re-imagined Don Quixote uses John Ormsby’s 1885 translation. Well-known for its precision, Ormsby’s translation has seen more editions than any other nineteenth-century English version of the novel to date.
Designed by award-winning designer Fraser Muggeridge of Please Do Not Bend Studio, London. With photographs by Royal College of Art graduate Jacob Robinson, specially commissioned to metaphorically trace and visually interpret the journey of Don Quixote in a fresh contemporary way through vibrant, expansive, and dynamic-in-scale landscapes. Hand lettering on cover and throughout the book by Jon Gray of gray318.
