The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman was our first published title. Since 2010 it’s seen three reprints and in 2011 was nominated for the Design of the Year award by the London Design Museum.
First published in the late 18th century in nine volumes Tristram Shandy is still, by far, one of the most contemporary books around. The thing is, though, Shandy has long been relegated to the realm of cheap and nasty classic editions and has lost its magic and lustre along the way.
When we briefed design studio, A Practice for Everyday Life, we asked them to breathe new life into the book’s design, adding new visual elements, while staying faithful to the original spirit. We also asked Will Self to introduce the book, and that he did, with typically irreverent brilliance.

After three successful print runs we’re all sold out of Tristram Shandy with no immediate plans to reprint. However, if we do re-release the book we’ll let you know via our newsletter.
