Visual artist Julie Russell-Steuart grew up in Maryland and earned a BFA in General Fine Art from Maryland Institute, College of Art. She publishes letterpress books of poetry, artist’s books, prints, and stationery on a vintage Vandercook printing press under the imprint Caveworks Press. A Chandler & Price platen press, guillotine paper cutter and nine type cabinets full of metal typefaces and various antique cuts round out her print shop. Her artwork combines printmaking techniques like linoleum carving, pressure printing, collagraph, and wood engraving. She uses various book-binding techniques to make blank journals. Her artist’s books are collected privately and by several University libraries, including The University of Iowa, Texas State University and the Lucille Little Fine Arts Library at the University of Kentucky. She resides in Reinbeck, Iowa, with her husband David, and daughter Cassandra.
