The Norton Trilogy

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. The Norton’s 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. The interior and cover is designed with Glypha, Hoefler Text and Gotham fonts.
