Farseer trilogy - illustrated 25th anniversary edition

- Posted in Robin Hobb news by

Robin Hobb's UK and US publishers, HarperVoyager and DelRey books, have been celebrating the 25th anniversary of the original publications of the Farseer trilogy by yearly releases of new hardbacks editions.

This particular set of books features full-colour illustrations by Magali Villeneuve, and unlike previous anniversary and special editions of the trilogy, is not strictly limited in numbers.

The 25th anniversary edition of Assassin's Apprentice was released in October 2019 in both markets and Royal Assassin followed in June 2020.

The last part, Assassin's Quest, was just released in the US this March, and the UK edition is set to be available in June 2021.

The US and UK editions have the same artwork inside, but the overall designs are slightly different. Steph @bookplaits has done great side-by-side comparisons of the first two volumes: Assassin's Apprentice and Royal Assassin.

If you are looking for a signed book to own, the Signed Page still has some copies of the US edition of Assassin’s Quest in stock and some signed copies are also available through University Bookstore.
