2010 Book Festival Author
Shawn Sheehy

Author Biography

Within the book arts, Sheehy is well known for his pop-ups—he enjoys working sculpturally within the book format. He controls as much of the book production as possible: he makes the paper, writes the text, illustrates the images, engineers the structures, binds the folios and designs the integrated whole. Pop-up images are particularly powerful in capturing a viewer's attention-—they facilitate the delivery of a potentially distasteful message with their attractive packaging. Making pop-up books for adults permits playing in the borderlands between 'youth culture' and 'adult culture' and thus striking out into new artistic territory.
