Like many good ideas in New Orleans, Luna Press began over drinks on a French Quarter balcony. Photographer Josephine Sacabo and her husband, writer Dalt Wonk, recalled a visit with Mexican guests, during which discussion turned to founding a publishing company.
“But what we would call it?” Wonk asked.
“One of the women pointed up at the moonlit sky and said, ‘La Luna,’ ” Sacabo remembered. A fitting name and serendipitous beginning for the publisher of such dreamy books as “Nocturnes,” with Sacabo’s moonstruck images and Wonk’s distinctive poems. And with that book, Wonk added, “We knew we could do it.”
