Book Arts 101: Home Edition

JCBA Artist of the Week

It is our honor this week to highlight Shawn Sheehy, a great advocate and technician of the book arts. Shawn is a book artist/paper engineer who works out of his home studio in Chicago IL. Aside from self-publishing limited-edition pop-up artist books, he also has two trade pop-up books on the market, occasionally works on commercial projects for hire, and teaches workshops regularly. You can vsit to see images of his books and projects, to see where and what he'll be teaching next, and also to explore other parts of his pop-up world—like the printed kits he offers for sale on Visit Facebook ( and/or Instagram (@shawnwilder) too!.

Real Mail Fridays

We may not be able to gather together at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts each First Friday of the month, but we can still celebrate Real Mail Fridays. And, we figure, why not do it every Friday?
