Binding Structure and Story
June 13th through 16th, Wednesday through Saturday, 9:00-5:00
Artists' books can be visual, textual, sculptural; traditional or
experimental. A book's structure becomes an essential element of its
content. Explore connections between structure and content and learn
several formats that are flexible and adaptable, making them
particularly appropriate for presenting material in alternative ways.
Develop content through exercises designed to gather information,
identify personal stories, and translate these ideas into book form.
Discussion focuses upon the importance of understanding book structure
and acquiring good binding skills to produce work with meaning and
integrity. While working as a book designer in Boston, Julie Leonard
began studying bookbinding, decorative paper techniques, and hand
papermaking. She was awarded a three year artist-in-residence position
at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina in 1990 and maintained a
bindery in the area until 1997. Julie holds an MFA in Design and a
Graduate Certificate in Book Arts from the University of Iowa. She
maintains a studio in Iowa City and teaches bookbinding and book arts
courses at the University of Iowa's Center for the Book. Julie divides
her studio time between limited edition and unique artists' books and
fine press edition binding. Her work is exhibited and held in
collections nationally.
