Locus Publishing was established in 1996 by
Rex How （Works of REX HOW）and maintains the spirit of "future, adventure, culture" in the cultivation of its publishing business.
According to Eslite Bookstore, one of Taiwan's most important book sales channels, Locus Publishing is among the top ten publishers in Taiwan.
