The seventh in our series of Four Corners Familiars takes us to Ruritania, a land redolent of many Central European countries, but not on any map. There, an English gentleman is mistaken for the country's soon-to-be-crowned King and falls into this remarkable doppelganger to protect the nation's best interests.

Mireille Fauchon's edition of the classic adventure novel introduces us to the landscape, people and customs of Ruritania, and to a time (thankfully long-distant) when the English regarded the rest of Europe as a strange and sinister place.

Four Corners Books is an independent publishing house, founded in 2007 by Elinor Jansz and Richard Embray. For their Familiars series, Four Corners commission artists to produce new illustrated editions of classic novels. By 'smuggling' contemporary art into the Classics sections of bookshops, Jansz and Emray hope that art can be brought to new audiences at affordable prices. Four Corners collaborate with artists working in different media and at different stages of their careers. Sometimes an artist's approach to their commissioned text is respectful, even celebratory, and sometimes it is subversive. In each case, designer John Morgan works closely with the artist to ensure that their approach to the text is reflected in the format and layout of the book.
