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.
