Hadean Press was founded in 2008 in West Yorkshire, UK, at the beginning of the solar year by Dis Albion and Erzebet Barthold. We produce books, journals and pamphlets in standard and limited editions. Dis and Erzebet also own and operate Papaveria Press, a small press dealing in mythic prose, poetry, and fairy tales. We are now based in the West Yorkshire Pennines.
Many of our titles are available as digital editions. Browse our digital shop here or wander through our print publications. If they are available as an epub or pdf, a link to purchase them appears on their product page. Please note that unless otherwise specified, all of our digital titles are sold as epubs.
Our Guides to the Underworld combine the aesthetic of a popular pamphlet with a depth of praxis rarely found in trade publications.
Guides to the Underworld are pamphlets for the discerning reader, including the Spirit Work Series, an introduction to working with spirits, particularly those of the True Grimoire.
Pamphlets, said to have appeared in the late Elizabethan period in a form recognisable to us now, are considered scurrilous little bits of paper filled with subversions and remonstrances. Hadean Press adheres to the second idea of the radix of the word Pamphlet… that it takes its derivations from παν, all, and φιλεω, I love, signifying a thing beloved by all; for a pamphlet being of a small portable bulk, and of no great price, is adapted to every one’s understanding and reading. The photo was taken by a friend and customer, and shows the pamphlets as they appeared in their first incarnation.
Our trade editions encompass a diverse array of subjects; titles are chosen based on our own appreciation of and interest in the material and its value to the seeker and practitioner alike. These titles are produced using print on demand technology as hard and/or softback editions.
Our handbound editions, which are few and far between, are created for Hadean Press by Erzebet, a book artist and binder whose work is held in private collections around the world.
