Liquorice Fish Books celebrates and fosters the imagination: as creative spirit but also as a faculty to open worldviews beyond a fixedly materialist outlook, into metaphor, analogy, and personal myth. We love publishing books that, through imagination, enhance our understanding of vibrant inner lives and landscapes, as well as this astonishing planet we share with so many other living beings — books that attend to our deep connectedness, lifting readers from being mere observers into conscious participants.
A Liquorice Fish book might be fiction or essay, poetry or creative non-fiction, created by a writer anywhere on the globe.
… the heart is the seat of imagination … imagination is the authentic voice of the heart, so that if we speak from the heart we must speak imaginatively.
— James Hillman, ‘The Thought of the Heart’
