Sator Press is a nonprofit publishing company founded by Ken Baumann in 2009. Its madness: produce and promote challenging literature, and do so slowly and sustainably. Its method: Ken reads, edits, designs, publishes, promotes, sells, and ships its books. Sator Press is operated out of Ken's garage in Santa Fe, and is dedicated to Barney Rosset, may he rest in endless creative hustle. (For the indie bookstore + indie press list, click here.)
