In November 2017 we learnt of the sad passing of Robert Hastings - the owner of Black Spring Press. Since 1985, Black Spring Press has produced work by Nick Cave, Anaïs Nin, Charles Baudelaire, Kyril Bonfiglioli, Carolyn Cassady and Leonard Cohen, among many impressive others.
Black Spring specialises in the contemporary, as well as breathing new life into neglected classics. We are delighted to have completed legal formalities in 2019 to connect Black Spring Press to Eyewear Publishing Ltd. and excited to be able to sell its wonderful books. Browse the collection here!
Praise for Black Spring publications:
...by far the best thing to have happened again in years... sublime and extraordinary... one of the most intriguing works since Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude ...richly poetic creations which live a second life on the page... gorgeously written... enthralling, sexy, funny, and politically as trenchant as anything being made today... marvellous and horrifying... like visiting a cafe in space... a revolutionary contribution to our vision of modern science...
