independent publishing house

Locus is an independent publishing house focusing mainly on contemporary literature and modern classics. Apart from our two series in prose, we publish a series for theater plays and one for poetry, and in the near future one for children's literature and one for non fiction. A main feature running through all of our doings is accessibility to quality; we work with carefully chosen translators, revisers and designers, yet we keep the books at an accessible price.

Through a selected literary catalog composed of the finest international writers, we wish to broaden the Hebrew readers’ literary horizons and discourse, and introduce a broad spectrum of literary possibilities to the readers, writers and book lovers alike.
