New Books for Old Souls

A New Chapbook: Levavi Oculos by Arthur Machen. Available June 29, 2019.

Darkly Bright Press is a small, independent book publisher with a focus on Uncommon Literature & Liturgical Christianity. Inspired by Welsh writer Arthur Machen’s emphasis on ecstasy in literature, our mission is to curate and spotlight such works by past voices and provide a platform for new authors, poets and artists.

Each volume published by Darkly Bright serves as an exploration and celebration of classical views on theology, personhood and the cosmos. By delving deeply into the mystical oeuvre of Arthur Machen… by traversing the moonlit lyrics of Joshua Alan Sturgill… by arriving to hear the day-song verses of Gaelan Gilbert, the reader discovers books which sing of journey. Through a delicate paradox, ineffable mysteries uncover hidden truth.

For early 2019, we are pleased to announce the imprint of Little Candle Press, a platform for Taos artist Claire Brandenburg. Through her lush illustrations and playful storytelling, Brandenburg creates vibrant children’s books which bring to a young reader a sense of mystery and wonder.
