Books released under the Lontar imprint are primarily translations of Indonesian literature. Select non-literary titles may also be considered for publication under the Lontar imprint, especially those seen as valuable for the enhancement of knowledge about Indonesian language, literature, and culture. In October 2010 Lontar launched under this imprint “The Modern Library of Indonesia,” a series that will highlight some of the best literature of Indonesia. Over the next several years, Lontar intends to release at least 50 titles in this series.
