Brian Keeble is a British author and editor.[1] He is the founder of Golgonooza Press and a co-founder of the Temenos and Temenos Academy.[2]


Keeble is the founder of Golgonooza Press where he worked as editor, designer and publisher from 1974-2004.[3]

He was a co-founder and is a Fellow of the Temenos Academy - whose Patron is Charles, Prince of Wales - which is a teaching organization dedicated to the same central idea that had inspired the earlier Temenos, of which he was a co-founder and editor (1980–1991).[4] Both focus on a devotion to the ‘Arts of the Imagination’ and feature the lectures and works of scholars and teachers committed to Perennial Philosophy.

The Golgonooza Press Archive, covering the years 1962 to 2012, is in the British Library Department of Manuscripts (Add MS 89131).
