Equinox Publishing is a Jakarta-based publisher of books. Its first book, KRETEK: The Culture and Heritage of Indonesia's Clove Cigarettes by Mark Hanusz, was launched on the vernal equinox, 21 March 2000 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Jakarta. Equinox has also published three works by Indonesia's renowned fiction writer, Pramoedya Ananta Toer.
On 21 March 2007, Equinox Publishing released a series of out-of-print books using print on demand technology. Two of these titles were related to the rise of the Communist movement in Indonesia, and were blocked by Indonesia's Department of Customs and Excise. However, during the launch, Indonesian Attorney General Abdul Rahman Saleh gave the publisher verbal permission for the books to be distributed in Indonesia.
