A radical Black-led micro-publisher based in the UK, giving platform to marginalised writers.





We began as an anti-speciesism collective who organised through animal artistry, community care, & (re)imaginative learning. These histories still influence our work today: all animals create; art is a practice of nature and essential to the success of all and any revolutions.


Everything we do is in consistent alignment with the abolitionist politic. We publish literature that is politically engaged and written from fresh perspectives on under discussed topics.


We are communally funded so do not rely on donors nor are deeply linked to the wider elitist world of publishing, instead opting to connect to the people.

Black run

We are grounded in our experiences growing up Black in England, as well as our roots across the Afrikan diaspora. Ensuring that our projects reach and connect to Afrikan people and projects beyond this country, using our collaborative networks – currently in The Gambia and Barbados.


Supporters pre-order our publications, which is the basis for an economical and ecological model meaning we only print what is necessary and therefore reduces our environmental impact. Additionally, this also makes all of our books, t-shirts, and stickers ‘limited edition’.

We uplift and honour the word of the people!

How it works

Ordering —

Pre-Ordering: You can pre-order our publications via Kickstarter, which is the basis for an economical and ecological model meaning we print in small runs, therefore reducing our environmental impact. This also makes all of our books, t-shirts, and stickers ‘limited edition’. 

Standard Orders: You can order books after printing/publication via our website. Please see our directory below to order the of in-house and external books we stock. If you are looking to order more than five copies of one of our publications, please get in touch directly.


Sending orders —

We distribute orders ASAP after they have been printed. Our model means we need to accept pre-orders so that we can cover the printing costs, therefore pre-orders will naturally take a little longer.

If you are ordering after a book has been printed/published, expect regular delivery times of 1-2 weeks, depending on location. 

Please feel free to get in contact about your order if you feel a significant amount of time has passed.
