PAUL JOHNSON:
A SUITCASE FULL OF POP-UP BOOKS LECTURE AND THE MAGIC OF THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL BOOK WORKSHOP

Thursday October 21, 9-3:00 in Station Building Room 101
All Book Arts Concentrators are invited to attend.

British book artist and educator Paul Johnson will discuss the power of the book as an aesthetic, architectural form, as well as its special fascination for children of all ages as he pulls a library’s worth of pop-up books out of a single suitcase.

At the subsequent workshop, Johnson will lead participants in making several 3-D book structures, embracing symmetrical and asymmetrical pop-up forms. He will also explore a wide range of paper engineering techniques, including movable structures pioneered by the great pop-up innovators of the 19th century and grand masters of the genre today.

Johnson is internationally recognized for his pioneering work in developing literacy through the book arts. He is the author of more than 15 titles, all published by Heinemann, USA. The lecture and workshop are sponsored by the book arts studio concentration program, open to majors in Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, and Printmaking departments.

When: October 21 Thursday
Where: Station Building Room 101

He doesn’t seem to have his own site, but there are a ton of images in Google Images.
