Heirloom Edition:
Agatha Christie is the best-selling novelist in history, with over two billion books sold in over 45 languages. HarperCollins picked up the English language rights to her work in 2010 and published the series with cool, vintage-style cover designs (many by the Brighton firm Crush Designs).
The Folio Society has printed a few Agatha Christie editions over the years. The Miss Marple and Poirot collections sport vintage-style designs with whimsical spot illustrations of characters and convention elements. Below: The Complete Miss Marple Short Stories (2003-2005) and The Complete Hercule Poirot Short Stories (2003). The Folio Society currently has a complete collection of Miss Marple novels in print here. Our announcement for the new Agatha Christie continuation novel: Poirot Returns.
