Hellebore was founded in 2019 by Maria J. Pérez Cuervo. It started as a folk-horror, non-fiction magazine. Its first issue, "The Sacrifice Issue", was published in October 2019. Cuervo explained she “wanted the aesthetics to evoke the late 60s and 70s, grabbing inspiration from Czech film posters, with a touch of psychedelia, and an old-school fanzine finish.”
The name was taken from the hellebore plant, known to alter the physical perceptions of those who consume it and thought to be one of the ingredients of the witches’ flying ointment.
