The quality is top notch! Can’t wait to order century press’ next book!
Beautiful book. Perfect size. Perfect feel! Love it!
Everything about the book is beautiful.
This is a surprisingly enjoyable book. The leather is soft and very nice to touch, the size of the book is convenient,, tight margins are an intriguing, and the artwork really complements the work. A surprisingly pleasant experience overall!
I'll make this brief ... I like this edition so much, I had to buy a second one for my brother-in-law. It's just too beautiful not to share with someone that loves literature as much as I do.
Another winning publication from Century Press. The Great Gatsby, which I've never read, showed up recently on my doorstep. I will read this edition. Looking forward to more from Century Press with enthusiasm.
Such a lovely volume and even more special having been created by artisans who appreciate the craftmanship of fine letterpress book design. Bravo and well done, all.
This is my first letterpress book and I'm very happy with it. I'm very much looking forward to the next treasure you will publish.
Honestly think it’s the best value to quality ratio from any book press out there at the moment. Highly recommend.
Very refined book. You can see the high quality of the materials from the very first look at the cover, and when you open the book it’s again a splendor.
Thought this was an even nicer looking book than the Fitzgerald book.
Beautiful, made a great gift.
The Sun Also Rises
Bravo, Century Press! A beautiful second effort with "The Sun Also Rises". From the sumptuous goat skin leather to the fantastic Letterpress printing, this book shows that the art and pride of book making is alive and well! I eagerly await their next offering. Great job on this book!
A beautifully produced book bound in leather. I love the letterpress type and plan to actually read this book and not put it on a shelf and admire it (which I will do eventually). Thank you. Look forward to more Century Press books.
