New Illustrated Edition of Toni Morrison’s “Beloved”

Beloved Illustrated

The Folio Society’s Illustrated version of Toni Morrison’s “Beloved”

Folio Society’s Edition is the First to Include Images

Since it’s publication in 1987, Toni Morrison’s novel “Beloved” has become a classic of late 20th century American literature. It won the Pulitzer Prize and a recent survey of 100 prominent writers by the New York Times named it the best novel of the last 25 years.

The new edition is the work of The Folio Society, which prints “beautifully crafted, imaginative editions of the world’s great works of fiction and non-fiction,” and is illustrated by Joe Morse, who is known for his portraits of political and entertainment figures. The introduction is written by author Russell Banks.

Flavorwire recently interviewed illustrator Joe Morse about his approach to illustrating “Beloved.”
