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!

Monique & Company Visit Paris!

Monique Lallier traveled to Paris with students Patty Bruce and Connie Wozny for a bookbinding shopping extravaganza, while taking in the sites, sounds and delicious food of this great city. In the above photo, Patty, Connie and Monique pose at RELMA, where they purchased leather and paper. What a blast!

Hélène Jolis joined her friends for many outings including a bicycle tour documented in the above photo. Monique and Hélène are planning a cultural tour next spring as part of an AAB excursion to Paris and Belgium. Keep posted for more information on that exciting trip, the first in a series of international educational and cultural programs that AAB has planned.

Old Stone Building to be Finished April 1, 2010



Here are a few photos of the building as it nears completion. The bathrooms aren't in, but the new roof is on, the upstairs has its drywall and everything is looking FANTASTIC! You will not believe the transformation. With the middle staircase moved back and the bathrooms on the landing removed, the whole downstairs is more open. And there will be a full kitchen at the top of the stairs (which isn't in yet.)

Enjoy these photos!
