A BLOG for students, faculty and friends of the American Academy of Bookbinding
WELCOME TO OUR BLOG
Dear Friends, Students, Faculty Members and lovers of books,
This is Deb Stevens. I am the administrative director for the American Academy of Bookbinding based out of Telluride, Colorado. This blog was started as a way for all of us, those who have studied at AAB, friends of AAB, as well as those who want to find out more about this place, can keep in touch with each other during the year. I'll be posting all kinds of photos, news and updates as regularly as possible (or newsworthy). I hope you will also share any bookbinding thoughts, questions, revelations, etc. Send me your photos and let us all know what you're up to. Keep connected!

Hélène Jolis Visa Approved!!!!
After several months of translating French documents, phone calls to France and internet research, Hélène Jolis' visa application for "ARTIST OF EXTRAORDINARY ABILITY" was successfully approved by the USCIS. Yahoo!! Thank you to everyone who sent positive energy and/or helped with the application. Get ready, 'cause now Hélène can teach in San Francisco, Boston and Ann Arbor! There is still room in most of her classes so drop me a line if you are interested. She is teaching "Titling" in Ann Arbor and Telluride, and "Contemporary Decorative Techniques" in SF, Boston, Telluride and Ann Arbor. We are very excited!! Hélène is a fabulous teacher. And who knows when she will be back in the States. If you are struggling with titling your books, Hélène will teach you a simple way to perfect your letters.
