I just want to take a moment to say how much I like your edition of “The Call of the Wild.” This is my third Century Press book, and it is a pleasure to see how each book grows. I think this is the most beautiful volume of the three, with its gorgeous blue leather cover, light blue ribbon marker, matching blue snowflakes on the introduction page and the following title page, and the blue drop capital for each chapter - not to forget the blue type on the initial title page or the blue flame on the candle (nice touch!). The illustrations are extraordinary, like fine etchings. The letterpress printing is crisp and impressions obvious as you run your fingers over the text. As usual, the introduction gives a sense of history to the book and urges the reader forward to the story itself. Thank you for this impressive volume. Here’s to your continued growth and success!
As with previous issues this new one shines - the goat skin binding is great, the use of blue creates a really great contrast to the printed black. And the paper holds the impressing of the letterpress machine to give a great tactile feel. Lovely.
The Call of the Wild
Absolutely adore my copy of The Call of the Wild. Excellent communication and postage. The book it self is gorgeous with stunning illustrations and two toned letterpress. The introduction by Jonah Raskin was very informative and enjoyable. Overall immensely happy with this product and cannot wait for the next book!
This is a beautiful book that made a great gift.
