About Squash Publishing

Founded by Gabe Fajuri and headquartered in Chicago, the press has released a wide range of titles, from histories and biographies to now-standard how-to manuals. Works by Jay Sankey, Stewart James, David Ben, John Bannon, and Handsome Jack are among its best-sellers.

An Important Note About Shipping
Many domestic customers have written regarding the speed of media mail shipments (or lack thereof), and buggy/tracking issues with the US Mail service. International First Class parcels have also been reported as slow to arrive.
These issues are beyond our control, but not yours! As such, we strongly encourage UPS/courier shipping, or at the very least, Priority Mail shipping of your orders.
