Mage Publishers is a small press founded in 1985 by an Iranian couple in Washington, DC. Initially they published works both for those in the West interested in an authentic view of Persian literature, art, music, food and poetry, and for those whose cultural heritage was Persian, but whose intellectual language had become English. Ten years and more than 30 books later, Mage continues to publish those aspects of Persian literature, art, culture and history that interest a global community.
