The Atavist

The Atavist is a boutique publishing house producing original nonfiction stories for digital, mobile reading devices. We like to think of Atavist pieces as a new genre of nonfiction, a digital form that lies in the space between long narrative magazine articles and traditional books and e-books. Publishing them digitally and offering them individually—a bit like music singles in iTunes—allows us to present stories longer and in more depth than typical magazines, less expensive and more dynamic than traditional books. Most importantly, it gives us new ways to tell some inventive, captivating, cinematic journalism—and new ways for you to experience it. You can find our stories on the iPhone and iPad, the Kindle, and the Nook, with more platforms launching soon.see more
