Pall W. Bohne (1935-2017) was an eminent member of the Southern California fine press and book arts scene who was known particularly

produced numerous works of ephemera and printed pamphlets, including a few miniature books such as Haiku with Birds (1967),
Highlights in the History of American Whaling (1968), and Jabberwocky, the Famous Mock Heroic Epic (1971). In 1971, Bohne
became a member of the Rounce & Coffin Club, a gathering space for bibliophiles founded by Grant Dahlstrom and Ward Ritchie.
Bohne demonstrated his skills as an artisan through wood-engraving and bookplate production, and purportedly held a wide range
interests in other fields such as beekeeping and blacksmithing.
