Granary's mission—to produce, promote, document, and theorize new works exploring the intersection of word, image, and page-—has earned the press a reputation as one of the most unique and significant small publishers operating today."- Granary Books
"Since the mid-nineties Granary has sought to produce, promote, and contextualize scholarship investigating an emerging history of small press publishing, poetry, and artists' books."- Granary Books
