El Quijote de Cervantes de tu puño y letra consists of a transcription of El Quijote carried out by nearly 400 volunteer copyists between the academic year 2004-2005 and 2019-2020. Most of them are students and professors of the Department of Classical, French and Hispanic Philology of the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lleida. However, Erasmus students from a dozen countries, local high school students and a few literature lovers have also made their contributions.
Two unique volumes were the result of this project. Both include a collection of ad hoc illustrations for this special and unique edition. The original volumes are available at the Library of the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lleida.
Editions and Publications of the University of Lleida has also published in “physical” format a special edition of numbered folders. These include the electronic edition of both volumes in an interactive USB flash drive, high quality paper prints of the project’s presentation, acknowledgements, the list of all copyists, the mentioned collection with the 10 illustrations and a bookmark made by the local artist Andrea de Castro.
