The Folio Society has reissued its illustrated, three-volume set of Isaac Asimov’s The Foundation Trilogy featuring artwork by British illustrator Alex Wells and introduction by Nobel Prize-winner Paul Krugman who cites the books as his reason for studying economics.
Drawing on contemporary politics, ancient history and mathematics, Asimov’s science-fiction epic explores the decline of the Galactic Empire; a civilisation that ruled nearly 25 million inhabited planets.
In addition to 21 illustrations by Wells, the collection features three striking binding designs and a blocked slipcase to create what the Folio Society bill as “the ultimate collector’s edition.”
The re-release comes ahead of a TV adaptation of the books debuting on Apple TV this September.
