About Book

Faber's first Collectors' Edition presents Kazuo Ishiguro's new novel in a beautifully-made and exclusive volume.

Our Collectors' edition of The Buried Giant has been printed by the traditional lithographic method on a small, sheetfed, Heidelberg press, using premium cream woodfree paper. Each volume is sewn and bound by hand, using a quarter-bound case of real cloth and printed panels front and back, with gold foiling and lamination. The books are finished with full colour printed endpapers, head and tail bands and a ribbon marker.

'There's a journey we must go on, and no more delay...'

The extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day.

The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased.

The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards - some strange and other-worldly - but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another.

Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war.
