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!

Spring Session Starts!

Renate Mesmer is here teaching Basics in Paper Conservation to kick off the spring session of the American Academy of Bookbinding. Yeah! Students are here from Virginia, Wyoming, Utah, Missouri, Nebraska and Colorado. The past three days it has snowed about a foot, which is a surprise but not totally uncommon here in the high Rocky Mountains. Hopefully by the time the rest of you get here the snow will be over!

Congratulations to Renate, who has just been named "Acting Head of Conservation" at the Folger Shakespeare Library, moving up from Assistant Head to take Frank Mowery's place. Frank is still the Folger but is onto some new projects. CONGRATULATIONS RENATE!!
