Paul Johnson creates amazing books from single sheets of paper that are architectural in structure with nothing added, nothing taken away, and no glue. He uses paper weaving techniques and interlocking, dove tail joints to make books that are like taking a reality tour through a building complex – a kind of paper Le Corbusier.

Paul Johnson is internationally recognized for his pioneering work in developing literacy through the book arts and as a book artist. He ran the Book Art Project from Manchester Metropolitan University and is the author of over fifteen titles including A Book of One's Own and Literacy Through the Book Arts. His work is in most of the major USA collections including the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York and the Library of Congress, Washington DC.
