Since 1996, Horse & Buggy Press books have won regional and national awards for their design, production, and content. Many titles find their way to special collections and rare libraries across the globe. Dave Wofford collaborates with established story tellers (Allan Gurganus), prolific poets and essayists (John Lane and Jeffery Beam), award-winning illustrators (Ippy Patterson), photographers (Rob McDonald, Roger May) and talented artists, writers, and historians creating important work in a variety of media and addressing issues of our day.
