River City Art and Music caught up with Eileen Johnson at the Ted Lare Design Build & Garden Centers, Art in the Garden event on Saturday, May 14th. For those that don’t know, book folding is an art form that involves folding pages of a hardcover book — sometimes combined with cutting the paper — within the book’s own binding. The finished work pops off the page three-dimensionally and may be hung on a wall or placed atop a table.
You can find more of Eileen’s work at Cards & Things by Eileen, Row your Goat in Winterset, and Atelier at 1109 in Perry, Iowa. You’ll also find her at Artists in the Courtyard on June 4th and Art in the Park on June 5th.
