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!

Reusable Bags from Pam!

Pam Wood, one of our devoted students, had a brilliant idea. 

When the town of Telluride went plastic-bag free earlier this year, we sent a note to our students alerting them that they would need a reusable bag at the grocery store or pay $.10 for a paper bag when they shopped. I personally embrace the ordinance and think we need to decrease the amount of single-use disposable bags, bottles and packaging that our society uses. 

Anyway, when Pam got the email, she had this brilliant idea. Why not have reusable bags at the studio for visiting students to use? Pam went ahead and printed a large quantity of cute, reusable bags with the AAB logo on them. 

Here is Brenda Parson's class modeling the groovy new bags. We are giving every student a free-reusuable bag, thanks to Pam's generosity and creativity. 

From everyone at AAB—faculty, staff and students, we send a big THANK YOU to Pam!
