About the Event
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 Graduate Certificate in Book Arts from the University of Iowa’s Center for the Book. Julie divides her studio time between producing limited edition and unique artists’ books and fine press edition binding. Her work has been exhibited and is held in collections throughout the nation.
