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!

FALL CLASSES START
Don Glaister's Intermediate/Advanced Fine Binding class started in Telluride today, and Monique Lallier's Fundamentals of Bookbinding class started in Ann Arbor. There are 15 students total attending the two-week long classes, and they have traveled from all over the country and beyond—two students came from overseas...from England and from Hong Kong! Way to go AAB!!! We continue to attract fantastic students from all over the world.
In Telluride, students were treated to a finished studio...new doors and windows were put in downstairs, and new sidewalks were built as well. The building is truly stunning, as as several local residents have commented, "this is the most beautiful building in Telluride!"
Here are a few photos from Don's class:
