Our Story

Notting Hill Editions is an independent British publisher founded by Tom Kremer (1930-2017), champion of innovation and the man responsible for popularising the Rubik's cube.

After a successful business career in toy invention Tom decided, at the age of eighty, to engage his passion for literature. In a digital world where time is short and books are throwaway, Tom's aim was to revive the art of the essay and to produce exceptionally beautiful books that would be cherished.

Hailed as 'the shape of things to come', the family-run press brings to print the most surprising thinkers of past and present. In an era of information-overload, these collectible pocket-sized books distil ideas that linger in the mind.

We believe that a beautifully produced book enhances the reading experience. Written by some of the most unusual thinkers of our times, our linenbound pocket-size hardbacks are a joy to hold - as arresting on the inside as they are on the outside.

These books will appeal to readers who savour the taste of thought

NHE continues to publish a curated list of great writers and persuasive thinkers.

I joined NHE in 2014 and worked with my father Tom Kremer until his death in 2017. We imagined our reader sinking into an armchair to read an NHE book and with this picture in mind agreed our commissioning ethic: 'She will be a slightly different person on rising from the chair than she was when she sat down.'

The essay is nothing less than the reflection of all there is: art, personal experience, places, literature, portraiture, politics, science, music, education – and just thought itself in orbit
