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.
Phillip Tippin’s incarnational vision bursts into life through robust language, formal precision and vivid imagery. With luminous density, Ordinary Time contemplates how the natural world mirrors liturgical life through close attention to common grace. Echoing elements of Hopkins and Guite—but with a voice wholly his own—Tippin traces the thin line between heaven and earth.

Darkly Bright Press is humbled to publish Ordinary Time, the first volume of poetry by Phillip Neal Tippin. During a time of social chaos and cultural collapse, it is refreshing to discover a poet whose verse emerges from an ancient tradition. With an abiding love for the beauty of a personal God and His relationship with creation, Tippin’s poetry attests to the healing symmetry he finds in faith and nature.
