About the Author

Julie Chen's books are considered exceptional for their craft and quality. Always mindful of the reader who will interact with her structures, she selects paper to delight the eye and appeal to the touch, while creating conceptual forms that function as “vessels” for text, images, ideas, and meaning. In addition to teaching Book Arts at Mills College and operating Flying Fish Press, Chen regularly lectures on bookmaking and teaches workshops nationwide. She lives in Berkeley, CA.
