The New York Review Children's Collection brings time-tested children's and young-adult literature to your bookshelf in sturdy, well-crafted hardback editions designed to last for generations. The covers feature a unified series design by award-winning designer Louise Fili, and all interior materials are carefully selected to reflect the period of original publication. Each book has a three-piece, paper-over-board cover, cloth spine, and coordinating head- and foot-bands. All text is printed on acid-free paper stock, and many titles include original endpapers, line art, and full-color illustrations.
