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.

    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.

    The Sun Also Rises

    Good paper, printing and binding.

    Issues are minor and don’t really bother me, but I set them out for something to say. Margins are small especially at the top of the page, text block was maybe 5 degrees off square on a few pages, the gold foil stamped on the leather cover has a few slightly rough edges. If you are not particularly interested in reading Professor Hannah’s thoughts of how a 95 year old novel by an assertively masculine to the extent of insecurity Hemingway measures up against Identarian ideological ethical concerns du jour I have read it for you and it contains no surprises; safely skip away.

    Don’t let those minor quibbles stop you getting this book. Beautifully written gripping classic, well printed and bound on very nice Cotton paper - made to last. I will certainly get more from Century Press.

    Great, tactile book

    I love the whole execution. The book is relatively small, but that makes it an excellent reading copy. I do put this in my bag and go sit in the park to read. CPs books want to be read. And treasured at the same time. That makes my time with them all the more valuable and memorable.

    Tiny treasure

    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.

    Great Value Great Production.

    Honestly think it’s the best value to quality ratio from any book press out there at the moment. Highly recommend.
