About Catafalque Press


CATAFALQUE PRESS takes its name from its first published title: Peter Kingsley’s 2018 Catafalque.

In a world that seems obsessed with the perpetually new and is determined to rush headlong into some unknown future, deaf to any counsels or warnings, Catafalque Press offers something different: the timeless wisdom of our ancestors.

This newly formed press aims to publish only those exceedingly rare works which embody the ancient understanding of creativity. That understanding has been expressed variously in different times and places, but was perhaps best summed up by Jung himself: “true creation is to give birth to the primordially ancient in a world that is new.”
