Capra Press was a Santa Barbara, California-based independent publishing house.

Noel Young, a former commercial printer, founded the press in 1969 with a volume of poetry, Journey, by Gordon Grant.[citation needed] Previous to this time, Young had been producing volumes under the imprint of Noel Young Editions and Capricorn Press.[citation needed] Before his death in 2002 at the age of 79,[1] Young published over three hundred titles with the Capra imprint.[citation needed] In the last years of operation, as Young's health failed, David Dahl took over editorial duties at Capra.[citation needed] The press was sold to Robert Bason in 2001[citation needed]. In March 2011, Capra was purchased by Hilary Young Brodey, (Noel Young’s oldest daughter), her husband Phil and John and Diana Harrington.[2]
