Our Story

We’re Lume Books, a small indie with big goals. We believe strongly in the role of the publisher to connect the world with stories that illuminate new thoughts and ideas, which is why our name stems from the Latin word for light. Symbolic of change, growth and creativity, it reflects the brightness we try to bring to the publishing world.

We’re home to an amazing list of talented authors and are proud to champion both debut and established writers. Behind every one of their published books is our dedicated team of editors, designers and marketers, working hard to bring timeless stories to new readers across the globe.

Take a look around, you might just find your next favourite read.


Sustainability & Packaging

Everyone loves a paperback book, but not everyone thinks about how they’re made. The key ingredient is paper, so we think it’s important to know where it comes from. Almost a third of the world’s surface is covered by trees and forests and we have a duty to protect them, which is why the paper we use to print 100% of our books is Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) certified. You can read more about the crucial work of FSC™ here.
