CAPRA PURCHASED BY ROBERT BASON IN 2001
For 31 years, Capra Press published fine literature by a stellar list of prominent authors. Due to the illness of its founder and owner, Noel Young, the corporation was closed in 2001 and the press name and logo were sold to Robert Bason, a local Santa Barbara bookseller and lover of books. Bason published an additional 20 titles during the time he operated Capra Press. Click on link to visit Bob Bason’s Books: abebooks.com

Purchased by Hilary Young Brodey, husband Phil together with friends John and Diana Harrington Capra will continue to follow the spirit and tradition of Noel Young; producing exceptional work by both established and emerging authors.
