100% Cotton Paper

Powered by wind and hydro energy, our paper is made from 100% cotton linters, a by-product of cotton garment production that would otherwise go to waste

Surplus Leather Bindings

Bindings made with the surplus from the garment industry reduces the manufacturing by-products created by new production

A message from the founder

I started Century Press because readers deserve better. As we build our book collections, our books build us. Why should such meaningful objects be mass-produced and unremarkable? Know that when you purchase a Century Press edition, you're acquiring a superior object, built to be pleasurably read and proudly displayed for generations.
