Independent publisher of talismanic esoteric and occult works
crossed keys
ncarlet imprint was founded in 2007 with the talismanic publication of 156 copies of The Red Goddess.

We have since grown to become one of the leading publishers of the contemporary occult world, producing standard hardbacks and highly sought after fine editions.

Our work supports practising magicians, the esoteric community and fine book arts. Erudition and scholarly standards are cojoined with the unique insight of practise and experience. Our work is infused with the red blood of passion.

All the materials we source are archival standard and FSC accredited. Our limited editions are printed and bound in the UK by a family-run firm. We take our environmental impact very seriously and produce books of endurng beauty.

We prefer the personal relationship of selling direct to our readers and supporting independent bookshops rather than through the machinery of the corporate book industry.

Our mission is one of revelation and revolution. The union of magician and witch.

Scarlet Imprint is run by Peter Grey and Alkistis Dimech.


our fine editions are hand-bound by master craftsmen to the highest standards.

We source materials with a clear intent, whether it is the correct shade of morocco, the finest vellum, the 24 carat gold leaf, unique commissioned marbled papers, or the more unusual snakeskin. We pay attention to the detail and spirit of the book. This is talismanic publishing.

We are commited to the fine book arts and the magick that can be bound into the book itself. Books are living things which can be consecrated and brought to life in order to manifest change in the individual who engages with them, and the wider world.


Our fine editions have been recognised for excellence with XVI shortlisted for the prestigious 2011 British Book Design and Production Awards. We intend to keep innovating.

Demand for the fine editions is fierce.

aibliotheque rouge was founded in 2010 making affordable paperback and digital editions.

Egalitarian, libertarian, fiercely individual, this is the propaganda wing of Scarlet Imprint for the transmission of information and knowledge.

Books should stay in print for students of the esoteric arts, and not be manipulated by artificial scarcity.

We believe that students of the esoteric arts should be able to have access to the same quality of material, regardless of their income.

Bibliotheque Rouge paperbacks serve as working copies for those prone to destroying books with candle wax, rain, coffee stains, underlining and annotations. They are travelling companions on the path.
