It is with great regret that we must inform our readers and customers of the sad passing of Robert Hastings on 30th November 2017 - 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 others.

Black Spring specialises in the contemporary, as well as breathing new life into neglected classics.

Praise for Black Spring publications: 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... marvelous and horrifying... like visiting a cafe in space... a revolutionary contribution to our vision of modern science...
