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