Urban Romantics is a boutique publisher set to promote new directions in modern arts and culture. Romanticism could be traced back to an artistic, literary and intellectual movement characterised by revolt against social and political norms and a reaction against the scientific rationalization of nature. It was embodied most strongly in the visual arts, music, and literature. This imprint is for all souls seeking new direction, new ideas and inspiring writing. Romantics of the past in Russian literature include Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov, Fyodor Tutchev. The poet and painter William Blake is the most extreme example of the Romantic sensibility in Britain. An early German influence came from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Classics released under this imprint will include Oscar Wilde, Mikhail Lermontov, William Blake, Alexander Pushkin and many others.
