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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Greetings from Telluride, the land of snow and mountains!
Telluride sits at 8750 feet and we are surrounded by 13,000 ft peaks. We get a significant amount of snow in the winter, which makes for great skiing. We haven't had a banner year yet, but the skiing has been decent. The cross-country skiing has been excellent, and in the above photo, Carl and Judy Ferenbach were visiting and we went out for a little jaunt.
AAB is gearing up for a great year! We have enrollment in almost all of our classes, and some classes are nearing their capacity. Sign up today! Call me if you have any questions about anything.
I will be posting a link to a new financial aid program. We have some additional funds available to needy students, and applicants will need to complete a financial aid application that I'll post a link to soon. Deadlines will be March 1 for the spring schedule. This is great news! More money to bind and repair books!
The AAB staff wishes you all a wonderful year filled with lots of creativity!
