ledge mule press

Ledge Mule Press was founded in 2012 by

Dave Torneo, Ross Gay, and Chris Mattingly. 

The  press was originally initiated out of a desire 
for these three people to create objects that were
records of their friendship as well as 
artifacts
of their love and commitment to great poems.

These days the press is run by Dave and Ross and
publishes books by poets they love and respect
in limited editions of 300 or less,
sometimes using letterpress,
woodblock print,

and a variety of other handmade techniques.

But they also use basic conventional forms of printing
to make handsome books you don’t mind stuffing
in your back pocket as you ramble your neighborhood
or along a stream-bed or an urban canyon.
