The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann in Heartland Blue
The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann in a Heartland Blue style book jacket. Thomas Mann’s epic account of life in a Swiss sanatorium in the years before the First World War combines an absorbing story with a magisterial analysis of European history and culture. Hans Castorp, an apparently healthy young man, goes to visit his tubercular cousin Joachim in the sanatorium and finds himself confined there with the same illness. At first rebelling against his situation, he soon discovers that the hospital and its environs make up an absorbing world in themselves, as an extraordinary cast of characters – Settembrini, Naphta, Peeperkorn, Madame Chauchat, the Director – act out for him, and for us, debates about the fundamental questions of existence.
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.
