    I like the white Jekyll edition personally. I would not buy both editions. ~Cap

    Man, as a long-time fairly serious Dracula collector (it's my favorite novel), I've gotta say that I find both of these new editions annoyingly overpriced. Drac is in the public domain, so you're not paying for any rights or anything, just the production costs. Although, they both are certainly nice- I don't find them worth the extremely high price points. Also, I don't really like the illustrations in the Amaranthine, and while the Folio illustrations looks better- I don't exactly love those either (I always wanted the Argentinian Symbolist artist, Santiago Caruso to illustrate it- and I believe he now has, but only in a foreign edition). These are tough for this Drac Fan to pass on, for sure, but, so far- I'm holding fast. If they ever go on sale, though..

    Ehh the features seem pretty comparable to me. It just depends on your tastes. I like the look of the Amaranthine one, but I find the glow in the dark ink to be a bit cheesy / gimmicky. They are also relatively similarly priced, with the Amaranthine one being very slightly cheaper.

    So now Folio Society is doing an edition of Dracula. Ever notice how titles like this seem to clump together?

    Cool and interesting book. The price is the price I suppose but it seems steep.
