Biographical Note

Chax Press is a small, Tucson based publishing house founded in 1984. Since opening they have published hundreds of books by creative, and innovative poets. They are known for their unique style of books that include both soft-bound offset books as well as hand-printed limited editions, combining both complex visual dynamics and more various book structures throughout all of their letterpress books. Their goal has also been to produce non-traditional literary fine press art in the form of books and other hand printed materials. As a non-profit arts organization, Chax Press, founded by Charles Alexander, Poet and Executive Director, has since become a large part of the arts community in Tucson. Chax Press organizes and supports local events such as readings, workshops, and exhibits to highlight the various authors they are proud to work with. Today, Chax published 8-10 books a year, mostly in paperback, that are distributed throughout the United States and beyond.
