The Windowpane Press

For Bonnie Thompson Norman ,books are a passion as well as a profession. She has been proprietor of The Windowpane Press, a letterpress printing and book arts studio, for over thirty years. She works full-time as a hand bookbinder in a commercial bindery. Evenings and weekends, she teaches classes in printing and bookmaking and produces limited edition artist’s books. Her studio has many things found in a traditional print shop and bindery such as a two Vandercooks and a Chandler & Price, hundreds of cases of type, a guillotine paper cutter, a Jacques board shear and, not the least, a wonderful library. Her work is collected in libraries and institutions throughout the world.
