Today, the Folio Society released the first illustrated edition of Philip K. Dick’s The Complete Short Stories a celebration of the influential sci-fi master that is (in keeping with the boutique publisher’s style) utterly gorgeously presented. We’ve got a look at some of the artwork, as well as the packaging itself.

The project was actually the brainchild of the Philip K. Dick estate, which proposed a complete, multi-volume set of the author’s 118 short stories (including the works that inspired Total Recall, Minority Report, and The Adjustment Bureau). From there, 24 illustrators were commissioned to illustrate the stories.

First up, here’s Yehrin Tong’s illustration for volume four’s “Return Match.”
