Neil Shaver (1924 - 2019) started the Yellow Barn Press in Council Bluffs, Iowa in the 1960s, though he did not begin printing seriously until 1979. He began at the University of Nebraska that year, where he studied printing under Harry Duncan and produced the first Yellow Barn Press book. He went on to print many expertly designed and crafted books about books: The Old Printing Office (1985), Elbert Hubbard: William Morris’s Greatest Imitator (1999), American Iron Hand Presses (1991), and John DePol: A Celebration (1994).

Starting with The Old Printing Office, John DePol (1913 – 2004) illustrated eighteen books for the Yellow Barn Press with his wood engravings. Jack Walsdorf writes that “the nineteen eighties and nineties were the time of John DePol’s most significant work and nowhere was it more in evidence than in the work he did for the Yellow Barn Press.”.
