Bonnie Thompson Norman
For Bonnie Thompson Norman books are a passion and a profession. She has been proprietor of The Windowpane Press, a letterpress printing and book arts studio, for nearly thirty years and works full-time as a hand bookbinder in a commercial bindery. Evenings and weekends, she teaches classes in printing and bookmaking. Her studio has many things found in a traditional print shop and bindery as well as a wonderful library. Works produced at The Windowpane Press reflect concerns about timeless and/or contemporary issues, offering challenging questions, provoking puns and inspiration in the form of broadsides and artist’s books. Works produced at the press are in institutions and collections throughout the United States and in New Zealand, France and England.
