An enchanted fantasy full of unforgettable characters and profound themes, The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle has charmed and delighted readers for over half a century.

Magical, beautiful beyond belief and completely alone, the unicorn has lived since before memory in a forest where death could touch nothing. Maidens who caught a glimpse of her glory were blessed by enchantment they would never forget. But outside her wondrous realm, dark whispers and rumors carried a message she could not ignore: “Unicorns are gone from the world.” Aided by a bumbling magician and an indomitable spinster, the unicorn embarks on a dangerous quest to learn the truth about what happened to her kind.

One of the most enduring classics of the twentieth century, The Last Unicorn has sold more than six million copies since its original publication in 1968, and has been translated into over twenty-five languages. In 1987, The Last Unicorn was ranked number five among the 33 All-Time Best Fantasy Novels by Locus magazine, and in 2020 Time included the novel on their list of the 100 Best Fantasy Books of All-Time.

With its lyrical prose, whimsical humor and philosophical ruminations on what it means to be human, The Last Unicorn is a quasi-medieval fairy tale that remains timeless.

Wonderfully in love with the details

This edition of "The Last Unicorn" is absolutely top class in terms of quality. The illustrations are beautiful, the paper is super grippy and all the imprinted little things and hidden details make the book my absolute highlight.
I already have a few great Artist Editions and Classic Editions, but this book is unrivalled.
Really great work, keep it up!
