CATAFALQUE PRESS takes its name from its first published title: Peter Kingsley’s 2018 Catafalque.

In a world obsessed with the perpetually new, so lost we don’t see how lost we are and so determined to rush blindfolded into the future that we have ended up in utter chaos, Catafalque Press offers something different: the timeless wisdom of our ancestors.

This newly formed press aims to publish only those exceedingly rare works which embody the ancient understanding of creativity. That understanding has been expressed variously in different times and places, but was perhaps best summed up by Carl Jung:

“True creation is to give birth to the primordially ancient in a world that is new.”
