Kuloy
Hallvard Kuløy
(1941-2001)
Founder
Orchid Press was founded in 1981, originally as White Orchid Press, and operated, until his untimely death, by Hallvard K. Kuløy, a former United Nations executive who had lived and worked for many years in Asia. Hal had a deep affection for literature and fine books, dating back to his childhood in rural Norway, which found expression in Orchid Press in his unerring taste for selecting and publishing books of great merit, both new works and reprints of classics.
   Today, Orchid Press is an energetic publisher dedicated to continuing Hal Kuløy’s legacy, and to providing readers with affordable high-quality editions of important works on the art, culture and religions of Asia.
