Background
Noel Young was the founder of Santa Barbara-based Capra Press, a small independent publishing house best known for publishing short works by famous authors such as Henry Miller. Young was a commercial printer who had been designing and printing books for Black Sparrow Press and other independent presses when he launched his own company in 1969 by publishing "Journey," a slim volume of poetry by his friend Gordon Grant. Young died on May 31 at his home in Santa Barbara. (Excerpts from Los Angeles Times, "Obituaries; Noel Young 79; Founded Independent Capra Press": Home Edition July 4, 2002).
