Lord John Press was a small private press founded by Herb Yellin in 1977. The press was based in Northridge, California, and it specialized in publishing limited edition, fine press books. Herb Yellin, the founder, was known for his passion for literature and his dedication to producing high-quality, collectible editions of works by notable authors.

Lord John Press published works by various well-known authors, including Norman Mailer, Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates, and others. The press gained a reputation for its commitment to craftsmanship, using high-quality materials and paying attention to design details in their limited edition publications.

After Lord John Press ceased operations, the limited availability and high quality of their publications made their books sought after by collectors.
