Why buy a Sastrugi Press Classic?

Sastrugi Press is dedicated to producing the best possible classic book editions for our customers. We take the original text and completely re-typeset it. We design our books for readability, visual appeal, and unrivaled enjoyment.

Many of our competitors sell you low-quality photocopies. They use cheap OCR software to convert the text, causing many typographical errors. This creates a terrible reader experience. Sastrugi Press does not and will never scan and paste.

We value your time and business. We use the industry standard software Adobe Indesign CC to create high-performance books. This expensive process produces easier reading than the original antique metal typeset printing. You will be proud to have our books on your shelves.
