[American Academy of Bookbinding], Imagine a Beautiful Book
The first half of Imagine a Beautiful Book chronicles the history of the first twenty years at the American Academy of Bookbinding. The second half provides an in-depth look at the fine binding techniques taught by Monique Lallier and Don Glaister, techniques that I've had the great pleasure of studying. I chose to bind this book because it represents the formation of AAB, and on a personal level, my own formation as a bookbinder. The all-white design is an homage to my teachers, to the school, and to the phenomenal natural beauty of Telluride.
