Cuminseed Press is the publisher of the book Mental Reservations and Other Traps by Father Gormless (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies, 46).


Cumin is a flowering plant, native from the east Mediterranean to South Asia, whose seeds are used in the cuisines of many different cultures, in both whole and ground form[1].

Bellairs is having fun with the word press, meaning both a device used to apply pressure to an item and the name of a publisher[2].
