The Indigo Press


The Indigo Press is an independent publisher of fiction and creative non-fiction, bringing together a conversation-starting curation of books that offer bold ideas and beautifully-crafted stories. We are open to writing from around the world and literature that explores radical thinking and literary innovation in both form and approach. 

The Indigo Press will publish its launch titles in summer/autumn 2018. 

The Indigo Press is the latest addition to a portfolio of book businesses that comprise the MILD Group, which includes long-established rights specialists The Marsh Agency, award-winning independent bookshop Dulwich Books, and LiveLit, a successful literary events series, that includes two annual literary festivals.



The Indigo Press is an independent publisher of literary fiction and non-fiction. We are partnered with translation rights agency The Marsh Agency and independent bookshop Dulwich Books, and headquartered at the legendary John Murray building in London.  

Guided by a spirit of internationalism, feminism and socialism, we publish books to make you see the world afresh, question your behaviour and beliefs, and imagine a better future.

The press is named after the ancient dye, used all over the world. Having once been a luxury product, subject to tariffs and harvested by slaves, indigo is now one of the most democratic colours in the world as the main ingredient of denim, or ‘serge de nîmes’. The decolonization – of the mind, body, or country – is a key element of our philosophy.

Our books have been featured by media outlets including BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4, Daily Telegraph, Economist, Evening Standard, Financial Times, Guardian, Metro, New Statesman, Spectator, The Times and The Sunday Times
