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,
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.
