The Sun Also Rises is Ernest Hemingway's debut novel and a touchstone work of 20th century literature. His story expertly distills the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I 'Lost Generation,' as it traces its characters' path from Paris to the festival of San Fermín in Pamplona.

Century Press is proud to present the first edition thus, first letterpress printing of 500 hand-numbered copies of Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises.

    • Fully bound in vegetable-tanned, Oxblood-dyed goatskin leather from the Hudson Valley

    • Letterpress printed on premium 100% cotton 'Flurry' paper with a 1956 Heidelberg 'Windmill' platen press, typeset in Garamond

    • Smyth-sewn by hand for maximum durability

    • Italian, tight-weave, cotton ribbon bookmark
    • New introduction by Daniel Hannah, Professor of Literature at Lakehead University
    • Original gold-stamped artwork on front cover, back cover, and spine by Mac Pogue

Note: Our leather bindings are made from the honest hide of an animal. You're getting the real deal: full-grain leather, considered the best and highest quality leather available. Be aware that this type of leather can be naturally marked with features from each animal like creases, wrinkles, and insect bites. This means that no Century Press book will look exactly the same.

Not Disappointed!

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!

Lovely 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.
