Our History


As a boutique publisher of books that encourage people of all ages to think beyond the status quo, it is our mission at Hermes House Press to provide readers with rich, visual experiences that inspire, inform and educate in unique and powerfully meaningful ways.


Hermes House Press was founded by author and photographer Jules Hermes in 2009 with the publication of PEACE. LOVE. PAWS: The Art of Being Kinda whimsical art book to benefit the work of the Atlanta Humane Society.

Since then, our list of books has slowly grown to include multicultural publications such as Una Experiencia by Teresa Glass Connaker and India Self Portrait: An artful anthology of Indian life in past and present, which spans nearly three decades.


Our latest thought-provoking book, Imagine If Thoughts Were Balloons, is written by Rico Vanvenutti and illustrated by Diane Waybright and offers children—and thinkers of all ages—a new approach to letting go of and holding on to thoughts.

In addition to our own titles, Hermes House Press helps authors navigate the publishing process through services provided by Hermes Creative. Sometimes a little encouragement, inspiration or help with a cover design is all an author needs to bring his or her story full circle. For more information, visit: www.hermescreative.net.
