 Norman Clayton studied typography and photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, and graduated in 1990 with a suitcase full of books he designed, printed and bound by hand. For 12 years, beginning in 1991, he was the printer and manager of One Heart Press in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2006, Jim Wehlage sold Classic Letterpress to Norman which included Adrian Wilson's KSBAZ Heidelberg Cylinder, stone, and a portion of Adrian's library. In 2010, he moved his family and letterpress shop to the beautiful Ojai valley in Southern California. Norman continues working happily, with a view of the mountains, as a printer, typographer and teacher.
