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!

Renate demonstrating a sewing technique.


Students learned a variety of sewing stitches and then made models with blank paper of each of the sewing structures to keep for future reference. They then applied this new knowledge to the textblocks they washed and prepared from last weeks "Paper Conservation" class. The results are stunning. The structures are beautiful.
