A BLOG for students, faculty and friends of the American Academy of Bookbinding
WELCOME TO OUR BLOG
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!
We here at AAB, are proud to share this press release regarding AAB Instructor Extraordinaire, Renate Mesmer. Congratulation Renate!!! We wish you the very best!
I am pleased to announce that Renate Mesmer has been appointed Eric Weinmann Head of Conservation effective July 1st.
Renate has been serving as Acting Head of the Gundersheimer Conservation Lab since the end of April. She first came to the Folger as a conservation intern in 1995, and returned for a second internship in 2000. In 2004 she joined the Folger on a permanent basis as Assistant Head of Conservation and, as her colleagues know well, she has contributed significantly to the success of the conservation lab’s work since that time. I’m delighted that we had such a capable candidate for this important position already on staff. Please join me in congratulating her.
