Old books, new looks.

Welcome. Old books aren’t always boring. They aren’t necessarily hard to read. They aren’t the ‘bran’ of literature (good for you, but not much flavour). They just end up looking that way. So I am trying to change that.

Gladstone Press books are painstakingly edited, carefully typeset for ease of reading, and designed using a clean, modern aesthetic. A matte finish and quality paper stock completes the look.

It’s a fresh approach that will revitalize your love for these classic novels.

On representation

Over the past few weeks there have been some important conversations about representation in the Western canon of literature. To be honest, there is always a reason to question what we consider a ‘classic,’ especially as each work ages into (or out of) our society. And let’s face it, the canon is traditionally very white…
