Iowa City Book Festival 2016

I will have a table with the North American Review at the Iowa City Book Festival with my work for sale and will be teaching a FREE workshop in JAPANESE STAB BINDING.

2 – 3 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016  •  Iowa City, Iowa    Website: http://www.iowacitybookfestival.org/


Location: Weatherdance Fountain Stage outside of the Sheraton Iowa City Hotel. (Pedestrian Mall)

In this hands-on bookbinding workshop you will learn how to make your own book with this ancient technique.   Visual artist Julie Russell-Steuart grew up in Maryland and earned a BFA in General Fine Art from Maryland Institute, College of Art. She publishes letterpress books of poetry, artist’s books, prints, and stationery on a vintage Vandercook printing press under the imprint Caveworks Press. Her artwork combines printmaking techniques like linoleum carving, pressure printing, collagraph, and wood engraving. She uses various book-binding techniques to make blank journals. Her artist’s books are collected privately and by several University libraries, including The University of Iowa, Texas State University and the Lucille Little Fine Arts Library at the University of Kentucky.

Free. Materials provided. Register HERE. Walk-ins welcome as long as we have the space and materials.
