Noumena Press
Publisher of Classic & Contemporary Literature

Noumena Press is a small independent publisher currently specializing in classic French literature in English translation through our Noumena Classics imprint.

All our books are printed on acid-free paper and bound in quality trade paperback bindings (5 x 8 inches), and a few are now also available as DRM-free PDF eBooks, with more to come. We are committed to keeping all our titles in print, and readers who choose our editions can be certain that they are getting the best presentation of an author’s work.

Though many (but by no means all) of the translations we print are themselves “classics” (a polite of way of saying “in the public domain”), those that we select have been carefully researched for their acceptability and completeness by the editor. They are then revised, annotated, and supplemented with appendices and illustrations if warranted.

In the future we hope to release translations of works by present-day authors as part of our Noumena Contemporaries imprint.
