Anthology 2
(Offer ends 30th November 2018)
“Imaginative and well-written, with some intriguing endings.”

“One that stood out for me was The Blow, by Benjamin Weinberg. Utterly convincing in style and voice. In just a few words it brought the reader in at once, with its evocation of a distant time and place.”

Ann Victoria Roberts, bestselling author of Louisa Elliott about Anthology 1.

Anthology 2

We've given the stories a gorgeous home this year. It's a substantial hardcover with heavy silk paper and just enough colour to fire the imagination before immersing yourself in our storytellers' words.


“I love the care that is taken with my stories. The effort by the team at daCunha makes the reading experience superb, really immersive.”

Bari Hein, daCunha storyteller and author


Anthology 1

Bonus: Anthology 1 sold out in 3 weeks, as a paperback, last year. It can be yours in hardback as part of a bundle.

daCunha

In the 16th century, Portuguese explorer Tristao da Cunha caught sight of a group of volcanic islands in the south Atlantic Ocean. As we all know, old-timey explorer types loved to christen their discoveries after themselves, and Mr. da Cunha was no exception. Though briefly known, during the 19th century, as the “Islands of Refreshment”, today, this almost unimaginably remote place is officially called Tristan daCunha. Population? Last we heard, 265.

We think it's fitting that we’ve named our bold venture after a tiny, faraway archipelago that appeals only to the most curious of people, who are rewarded for the journey. You won't find feeds, recommendations, or chatter here. daCunha.global is an online experience that is all yours.

We're on a mission to share beautiful stories.
