The Dark Mountain Books
At the heart of this project are the books we publish: beautiful hardback collections of uncivilised words and images where many voices come together to explore the questions which Dark Mountain frames.
Here you will find essays, conversations, stories, poems and artwork of all kinds, made by those who have lost faith in the stories our societies like to tell about the world and our place within it. Since 2015, each year’s autumn book has been a special issue, plunging deeper into a particular theme – technology, poetics, the sacred – while the spring book returns to the classic form of a Dark Mountain collection.
Many of our earlier books have now gone out of print. We hope one day to be able to make them available again in a physical form, but in their absence it is possible to order PDF downloads of individual issues – or the digital back catalogue in collections of Issues 1 to 14, and 15 to 17.
You can also view the online launches of our recent books with a selection of readings and artwork by contributors and introductions by the editors in our film and video section.
