A spokesperson for Dark Green Books says, ‘The future of publishing is participatory and electronic. With our viral book selling and reselling Dark Green Books intends to be a major player in that future.’
Dark Green Books author Luke Andreski states, ‘I simply want to make my readers rich!’
In their controversial manifesto, Dark Green Books state:
Why shouldn’t we adore books? The feel, the sensation, the smell and the touch of books?
Why shouldn’t we adore the turning of the page, the rustling of paper, the heft, the gravitas and the weight of a book?
Such things are given us to treasure.
And yet… the biosphere is at risk. A future in which our children can enjoy books of any kind is at risk…
Dark Green Books believe hardcopy works should be produced with care, not as disposable commodities but as items to be cherished and preserved – as rarities, collectibles – to keep forever upon your bookshelf and leave to your heirs.
Dark Green Books aims to produce limited editions of our authors’ work – and to meet the demands of an international audience for easily available eBooks. Our hardcopy limited editions will be beautifully crafted and bound, each signed by the author. Our eBooks will be cheap, easily accessible and downloadable in a convenient range of formats.
Dark Green Books (and our authors) are more interested in the distribution of good writing than in financial gain. Our readers will be able to make more money than our authors from the re-sale of each downloadable work. As a company, we will never answer to shareholders – and profit will never be our driving motivation.
Savour the writing.
Participate in the greening of the world of books.
