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!

The Academy experienced a change of pace on Monday when the students for Don Glaister's "Leather Box Making" class started their week of learning. A group of seven students sat rapt as Don presented his first of several demonstrations/lectures. As the week progressed, so did the number of dimensions... from a single idea to a fully formed box. What fun to witness the process. I have to admit though, it was very difficult not to want to jump in and join in! I had to work hard to keep my hands off from other people's work!

Tomorrow (Friday) is the final day for the box people and for Don's spring teaching commitment. Best wishes to all as you go forth and make lovely boxes to complement and preserve your books!

One student needed to return home midway through but we were wishing she were here.
