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,
We strive to publish two titles a year. Our books are distributed
by Small Press Distribution.
