Abstract

The year 1978 was a significant one for Iowa-born Neil Shaver: he began his printing career after taking a course at the University of Nebraska; he also issued his first Yellow Barn Press book. Over 27 years Shaver printed some 30 separate publications, including works illustrated by the New York wood engraver, John de Pol (1913-2004). The press closed in 2005. De Pol’s engraving of Eric Gill features on the frontispiece of this work. The Gill theme continues with Shaver’s use of Joanna and Perpetua, typefaces designed by Gill. Special Collections continues to add private press material to its already extensive holdings in this area.
