Hesperus Press is an independent publishing house based in London, United Kingdom. It was founded in 2001.

The Publisher's motto, "Et Remotissima Prope" is a Latin phrase which means "Bringing near what is far". It has quietly devoted itself to shining a light on neglected titles and authors.[3] Hesperus Press has published some 300 works[4] by both classic and contemporary authors, including: Dante, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Dickens, Dostoyevsky, Flaubert, Kafka, Tolstoy, Woolf, Annie Dillard, and Aldous Huxley. Their series include: Hesperus Classics, Brief Lives, Poetic Lives, ON, Modern Voices, and Hesperus Worldwide.[5]

Hesperus is also responsible for the best-seller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Swedish author Jonas Jonasson, released in July 2012.[2]
