Mission Statement

To consistently provide trendsetting niche literature and beautifully restored classics at the lowest possible price, in order to ensure the best value for fellow readers without sacrificing the quality they expect and the amiability they deserve, and to preserve the legacy of timeless works for future generations.

Our Name & Logo

Our name, Prohyptikon, is derived from the Greek root hupos (meaning “secret”), the full name best being translated as “Of the supreme mysteries.”

The Prohyptikon Logo, a stylised six-pointed star over a red crescent moon, is a sigil designed after the Sumerian word pap-hal, with the second cuneiform sign enlarged and superimposed over the first; pap-hal has a similar meaning to the Greek root hupos in our name.

Our Environmental Commitment

We are pleased to announce that through our print fulfillment partners, the entire Prohyptikon catalogue is printed on either FSC/SFI/PEFC CoC Certified paper, or FSC Certified 100% Post-Consumer Waste Recycled Paper, continuing our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our publications.
