About Squash Publishing

Since 2003, Squash Publishing has been producing books keenly focused on the subjects of sleight-of-hand, history, gambling, and the variety arts.

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.

The company's books have been translated into Japanese, German, Spanish, Chinese, and French. Through this website, we also offer a select number of titles issued by fellow publishers, as well as titles with which have assisted in the production or publication.
