American Academy of Bookbinding Announces New Director, An Additional Campus
and the Schedule for 2005

The American Academy of Bookbinding in Telluride, Colorado welcomes Monique
Lallier as its new Director. An internationally recognized bookbinder and
book artist, Monique¹s years of experience in the technique of French
binding makes her an ideal choice for director and instructor in the AAB¹s
French technique-based bookbinding program.

Joining Monique as an instructor at the AAB this year is Don Etherington,
noted conservationist. Don will instruct an introductory course in
restoration and repair of cloth and leather bindings and a course in design
and titling.

Also new for 2005 is the addition of Hollander¹s Bookbinding School in Ann
Arbor, Michigan as a site for AAB classes, in addition to the Telluride
location. In 2005 courses in Telluride will be during the spring and early
