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!

Have you ever wondered what happens at the studio when the bookbinding classes are not in session? Though in my previous post I said something about it being “quiet”, that is not entirely true. As a part of Telluride’s Ah Haa School for the Arts, we often host classes offered by the school such as; Nuno Felting, Watercolor Painting, Drawing, Portrait Painting, Found Object Sculpture, Cold Wax & Oil Painting, Printmaking & Fiber Arts, and on and on. Who knew? Most recently Kathy Green and her students made the Stone Building their home for three weeks of complete color chaos as they submerged themselves into the Batik dying of numerous silk scarves. Beautiful! What a delight it was to walk in the door and float through a riot of color and design as the sun filtered through the studio. So Judy and I thought we would share this with you – ENJOY!
