Emily Gravett Illustrates 25th Anniversary Re-issues Of A Series Of Unfortunate Events

We are delighted to share that Emily Gravett’s fantastic illustrations will adorn a new collection of Lemony Snicket’s celebrated, A Series of Unfortunate Events.

These repackaged editions are here to mark the 25th anniversary of Snicket’s books, toasting years of misfortune inflicted upon young readers who have dared to read it over the years! The release of these new editions was announced with a brilliant press release by Farshore, who adopted Lemony Snicket’s hilariously dry style to share the news, saying: “If you have had the misfortune to stumble on this news today, then I am afraid that you have been the victim of a grave injustice. Farshore is reluctant to announce that A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket has undergone a terrifying transformation in 2024, commiserating 25 years of tragedy and gloom inflicted on young readers.”

Snicket’s series has found huge success over its quarter of a century in print, with over 60 million copies sold worldwide and a Netflix adaptation starring Neil Patrick Harris. We are overjoyed that Emily has been chosen to re-imagine the fantastically dark tales of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire in an inimitable, grizzly style.

The first five of the new anniversary editions will be available on 25th April 2024. The remaining seven anniversary editions will be published 15th August 2024.
