We are pleased to announce a special limited and hand-numbered First Edition of Machines Like Me, signed by the author before publication and in association with Jonathan Cape. In his latest book Ian McEwan bends history with an intellectual thriller which explores the technological and moral implications of Artificial Intelligence and robotics, set in an alternative version of Britain in the 1980s.
Comprising 100 copies only, numbers 1 to 75 have been quarter-bound in Harmatan fine natural grain leather (Teal 38) with design label printed by letterpress to front of book. 25 copies, numbered i to xxv, have been fully bound in the same leather with the letterpress label to front of slipcase. All copies are printed on 120 gsm Logan book wove paper in typeface Centaur and contain, in a pocket, exclusive facsimile pages of the author’s early notes for the novel. Both quarter-bound and full leather editions have head and tail bands, gold blocking to spine and are housed in a Dubletta slipcase lined in suedel.
The edition has been designed by Andrew Stilwell and Patrick Roe and is produced by the Logan Press in Finedon.
