Frost Books & Artifacts carries a large stock of folio books dating back to the early fifties. In general folio books refer to books produced by the Folio Society. This is a privately owned London-based publisher, founded by Charles Ede in 1947 and incorporated in 1971. It produces illustrated hardback editions of classic fiction and non-fiction books, poetry and children’s titles. Folio editions feature specially designed bindings and include artist-commissioned illustrations (most often in fiction titles) or researched artworks and photographs (in non-fiction titles). Most editions come with their own slipcase.

For many years the Folio Society had a bookshop in Holborn, London, but the bookshop closed in December 2016 when the company moved premises. Folio editions can be purchased only online through their website, by post or over the telephone. Some editions are stocked by independent bookstores, by Blackwell’s in Oxford, and by Selfridges, Harrods, and Hatchards in London.

Frost Books & Artifacts also has many Facsimiles Editions for sale.
