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!

Students in Paris with Monique and Hélène!

A group of intrepid students and Monique Lallier are in Paris, Brussels and Brugge for two weeks, with Hélène Jolis as their professional guide. They are touring the amazing studios of some of Hélène's contemporaries, and visiting rare book collections and libraries (and eating lots of delicious pastries and drinking some fine French wine, I'm sure!) We are all very jealous and wish we could be there with them; just thinking about the yummy cheese is making my mouth water! I can't wait to hear about everything that you've seen (and eaten!) Please take lots of photos. Here are some photos of the group sent to me by Yumiko Harris.  My first comment is, "Wow! You all look so snappy in your French tourist outfits! Not what you usually wear the studio here in Telluride!"
