“In the natural world, there is no true black flower– most are very dark shades of purple or red. Though, the black flower serves as the holy grail to flower breeders–a symbol of mystery, romance, and success. It hints not towards the finite, narrow, and understood, but to the extravagant and liminal space just beyond.”

Our Mission

Born out of the Appalachian Plains, we publish literature, photography, and art books about love and beauty in times like these.

Our work and mission is rooted in meeting you where you are: on the earth, buried in the soil, budding with hope, covered in dew, bursting with light. We want to dream together- hand in hand- so that we may cultivate a community of ripening individuals, build a spirit of reciprocity, and share work in a meaningful and tangible way.

What we Publish

Limited Edition, Intentional, Gorgeous Books

Group Volumes

Once a year we release an open call to our community around a curated topic. This coalesces in a physical collaborative zine exploring the theme.

Poetry Collections

 A collection of a poet’s writings built around specific theme, idea, or concept. We help take a manuscript into an elegant book.

PHOTOgraphy Monographs

A book exhibition of a visual artist’s work around a specific theme, idea, or concept. We help to curate, build, print, & distribute an artist’s books.
