The Obolus Press specializes in books about French and German artists from the 19th and early 20th centuries.

As the name suggests, the publisher hopes to turn a modest profit by ferrying dead authors across the linguistic divide.

From time to time the press will also venture into history, philosophy, and literature from the same time period, and reprint English books that have been either neglected or overpriced by competitors.
