The Norton Trilogy, written by notable historian Jack L. August Jr. follows the
lives of John R. Norton and John R. Norton, Jr. as they shaped the beginnings of Arizona
farming. Their expansions into diverse
crops paved the way for modern
agribusiness as it responded to new water irrigation policies. Our goal for the design was to respect the historical nature of the text with a simple, straightforward typographical hierarchy to guide the reader though the pages.
