March 5th & 6th 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

STUART R. EVENSEN, Bookbinder

Stuart was born in Prince George British Columbia, Canada and has been binding books
for more than 20 years. He was trained by master French bookbinder, Jacques Desmonts
from Normandy. Stuart brings old world techniques he learned from his mentor and
his own innovations to create books that he hopes will inspire people’s creativity
and expression. To create a beautiful, functional work of art is always Stuart’s
goal.

Unique to his studio is using Japanese calligraphy boards called Shikishi as the
front and back covers of his books. They are an elegant palette upon which Stuart
crafts his distinctive work.

Also featured on Shikishi are vignettes from lovely Japanese paper called Sogara
Yuzen, or ‘whole story.’ Children in a procession, rabbits flying kites and colorful
antique vases are some of the subjects on these books.

Also unique in Stuart’s work is featuring fine Japanese woodblock prints on the
covers of his books…these are truly functional works of art that inspires each
time they are used.

On a trip to Italy many years ago Stuart discovered a third generation paper marbler
who supplies him with paper for the covers of his book. They are unique in their
use of vibrant colors and metallic ink.
