Restless Books is thrilled to be launching a new line of world literature that “puts the class back in classics,” enhancing the reading experience with deluxe paperback editions and personal interaction with great teachers. In order to fund this project, we've launched a Kickstarter campaign: Restless Classics’ 400th Anniversary Edition of Don Quixote.
We all have “the list”: all those classic books that, after leaving school, we might never get around to reading. But the experience of reading collectively, led by a passionate teacher, doesn’t have to end at graduation. With Restless Classics, we’re bringing the classroom experience to the reader, through video teaching series and live online book club discussions.
Our publisher, Ilan Stavans, a noted Don Quixote expert and revered professor at Amherst College, has a lot more to say about the book and the project in the video you’ll find at the link above. You’ll also find some examples of Eko’s stunning original artwork. As rewards for backers—in addition to the book and access to the video and online discussions—we’re offering all sorts of goodies, from tote bags to prints to a dinner in New York with us.
