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!

Like any self-respecting mad scientist, Timothy C. Ely is poised to change the world... or at least, the bookbinding world. Of course he has already made a significant mark on the landscape of convention and this last week, he has been playfully guiding his students to set aside their notions of established rules of what is or isn't possible, and just spontaneously explore and create. Just. It's been fantastic to witness the process and view the play in progress. We've truly enjoyed our time with Tim and the students - I think we all would like to see it continue on site, but this is a dialog to be continued regardless of spacial constraints. The students have only started or refreshed their exploration. Thank you Tim... what incredible fun this field of play was!
