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!

Don Glaister and Monique Lallier.

Monique Has Arrived!

Monique Lallier is back teaching her intermediate and advanced students. What a joyful, busy, and creative studio we have! We had an open house at the bookbinding studio the first week of class, and over 100 locals came to see what is going on here. We had book models to view, and a few finished books to showcase. Students described what they are working on to interested attendees. We also presented Monique with a thank you gift for her previous years as Director of the Academy.
Her class is one more week, finishing up this Friday, June 4th. Monique is offering a slide show and lecture titled "Contemporary Design Bindings," Tuesday June 1 at 6:30pm at the Ah Haa Depot. For those of you in the area, please join us!

Monique demonstrates how to attach her pewter plate to "The Thread That Binds."

Cutting the round edge.

It was like a sale at Filene's Basement the day I offered suedes for $10. The shoppers went crazy!

Monique with Sally Simpson, one of her students who is also a jeweler. Sally made a beautiful pin for Monique as our thank you gift for her five years as Director. Daniel Tucker presented the gift to Monique and made the box the pin came in.
