About ADRIAN WILSON (from a 1988 NY Times Obituary):
******Adrian Wilson, a book designer and scholar who was considered one of America's leading fine printers, died Wednesday in San Francisco. He was 64 years old.
Working out of a small San Francisco studio known as '"The Press at Tuscany Valley," Mr. Wilson designed and printed scores of books. His many volumes, while little known to the general public, are famous among print connoisseurs, and many are collectors' items.
In 1983, Mr. Wilson won a MacArthur Fellowship.
He is survived by his wife and by his daughter, Melissa Wilson Marshall, of San Francisco.******
