For those who haven’t jumped on the Edmund de Waal train yet, here’s your chance! Farrar, Straus and Giroux will be publishing the Illustrated Edition of The Hare with Amber Eyes in November. This beautiful edition features 100 previously unseen images, including photographs of the netsuke collection and full-color images from de Waal’s family archive.
Book Clubs will be happy to know that de Waal has a handy reader’s guide available on his website here.
