Artist BioEmily Martin has been exploring the relationship between format and content for many years in her work. She often combines letterpress printed images and text with movable and/or sculptural book forms using a variety of traditional and experimental techniques. She has held artist’s residencies at the Center for Book Arts, New York City (2002); Lawrence University (2012), the Penland School of Crafts (2014), The University of Florida, Gainesville (2015); and most recently was printer in residence at the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford, England (2018). She teaches bookbinding and paper engineering classes at the University of Iowa Center for the Book and has taught many workshops across the United States, in England, and In Chile. She received a silver medal from the Designer Bookbinders for her book The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet (2012), and her book The Tragedy of King Lear was a semi-finalist for the Minnesota Center for Book Arts Artists Book award (2020). Her work is in collections world-wide including The Library of Congress, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Library in the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the National Gallery in Washington, DC.
