The rose-apple tree in English, the jambu has a great span of branches and thick, leathery leaves providing shelter from the sun. It is believed that Buddha sat under a jambu tree for shade.
We hope reading books from Jambu Press will bring beauty, inspiration, and raise awareness, like sitting in the shade of a jambu.
An expression of Studio Saraswati, Jambu Press is an independent endeavor run by a small collective of San Francisco poets, editors, and activists devoted to poetry as a positive path to social change. We are guided by our current managing editor, Minister of the Interiors, Bobby Coleman.
Our books are distributed by Small Press Distribution.
