In 1994, Catia and Thom Carnell published the first issue of the “dark art journal,” CARPE NOCTEM. Their vision… to bring quality art, insightful interviews, and knowledgeable cd, book, and software reviews to a needful public. With an initial run of 1,000 magazines and one distributor – Tower Records – in their corner, CARPE NOCTEM soon blossomed and print runs increased to numbers that were unheard of in micro-publishers. Within just a few releases, CARPE NOCTEM was available around the world in Tower Records, Hot Topic, Hastings, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and many other outlets. Contained in the pages of CARPE NOCTEM were features on musicians, artists, writers, and filmmakers – the likes of which were unseen in small press publications. Soon, CARPE NOCTEM became the pre-imminent dark culture publication the world over. CARPE NOCTEM ceased publication in 2000.
