James Bond and Harry Potter are indebted to this classic adventure tale and its young hero, Jim Hawkins. The archetypal adventure story is presented complete with the author's map of Treasure Island and his account of how the story came about. The printed illustration wrapping around this beautiful edition uses gold foiling and blue waves strikingly printed on the navy blue cloth background. The cover illustration is by the artist Stanley Donwood, best known for his designs for the band Radiohead. Both contemporary and classic, this book has unique appeal for any lover of adventure stories.
