The Anti-EBook Company

A while back, I took advantage of an introductory offer and purchased a $5.95 version of Huckleberry Finn from Easton Press. The press is dedicated to creating high-quality leather bound books. Truly, they are the anti-ebook company.

These are books for people who love the feel and look of fine books lining a shelf. They offer a surprisingly wide variety of books, from the classics, art books, and histories that one might expect, to those one might not expect such as the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia or a signed copy of The Help. Truly, there is something for everyone.

Sadly, the prices are quite steep. I think that compiling any sort of collection of these is out of reach of most people, myself included. But, choosing one might make a great gift for the book lover in your life for a special occasion. In any event, their catalog is beautiful to look at, and it is comforting to know that such appealing books are still being made.
