Very exciting–we have now sent off the digital files for Jules Verne’s Mikhail Strogoff to the printer! Quite a long way to go yet in production, with ozalids(digital proofs), printing and all the associated extras to come, but it was wonderful to see the complete files of what is going to be an absolutely sumptuous book!
In next week or two, we’ll be uploading a pic of the splendid cover but in the meantime, here’s the finalised back cover blurb, to whet your appetite:
Russia, late 19th century. The Empire is in great peril, and only one man can save it: the bold and resourceful young messenger Mikhail Strogoff. In a desperate race against time, he must face great dangers if he is to deliver his warning, as foreign armies mass on the border and a traitor lurks ready to strike. But is it already too late?
The first full English translation in over a hundred years of legendary author Jules Verne’s thrilling adventure novel.
