Symposium and Phaedrus by Plato - Vellum Style Jackets
Symposium and Phaedrus by Plato with a Vellum Style book jacket. Describing a party in the Athens of the fifth century BC, this short and deceptively unassuming book introduces profound ideas about the nature of love in the guise of convivial after-dinner conversation. Published together with the Symposium is Phaedrus, in which Plato discusses the place of eloquence in expounding truth. Socrates plays the leading role in both dialogues, by turns arguing, joking, and teasing his followers into understanding ideas that have remained central to Western thought ever since.
This book is a clothbound hardcover volume published by Everyman’s Library, complete with silk reading-ribbons, acid-free, natural cream-colored paper, and European-style half-round spines. Each book is wrapped in a hand-folded jacket custom designed by Juniper Books.
