HERE’S A SELECTION OF SOME OF OUR MOST POPULAR SERIES
This series has been created with the aim to redefine and enrich the classics canon by promoting unjustly neglected works of enduring significance. These works, beautifully produced and mostly in translation, will intrigue and inspire the literary connoisseur and the general reader alike.
Alma Classics Evergreens is a series of popular classics. We now have almost 100 titles in this series, which is constantly growing. Most of the titles are provided with an extensive critical apparatus and extra reading material, including a section of photographs and notes. The texts are based on the most authoritative edition (or collated from the most authoritative editions or manuscripts) and edited using a fresh, intelligent editorial approach. With an emphasis on the production, editorial and typographical values of a book, Alma Classics aspires to revitalize the whole experience of reading the classics.
Alma Junior’s series of illustrated classics includes some of the greatest books ever written for younger readers, as well as new translations of unjustly neglected international works. Our aim is to give our list an international feel and offer young readers the opportunity to connect with other cultures and literatures – this applies not only to the titles we choose, but also to the illustrators we commission – so that we can bring a bit of novelty into the canon of British children’s literature. All Alma Junior classics contain extra material for young readers, including a profile of the author, a section on the book, a list of characters, a glossary and a test-yourself quiz.
An affordably priced, extensively annotated and beautifully produced series which includes the works of some of the world’s greatest poets. All the books in translation are in dual-language editions and contain extra material on the authors’ lives and works. Each volume is based on the most authoritative text and reflects Alma’s commitment to provide affordable editions with valuable insight into the great poets’ works.
The Quirky Classics series is the perfect gift for a classic-lover. It includes humorous works by famous authors such as Jonathan Swift, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Oscar Wilde and many others. All the books in this series are presented in a small paperback format.
