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!

This past week in Telluride, the one week Box Making for Conservation class went on and students got to learn several new box structures to take home and apply in their own libraries! 

Structures taught were a clear spine, four flap box, a clamshell box with a shelf, and rounded spine box. Students brought in their own books so to make custom boxes for each.

Tools, Tools, Tools!

"It was so exhilarating to finally make a well-fitted clamshell box that has the vaccuum effect and makes a swooshing sound when closing!"
