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.

I joined NHE in 2014 and worked with my father, Tom Kremer, until his death in 2017. We value quality over quantity, publishing only around six titles a year. In a world of overwhelming choice, our aim is to curate a library of fine writing and original thinkers, published in elegant editions. The books are brief enough to be read over a few evenings, but the ideas are timeless.
Kim Kremer, Publisher
