Hollander's is owned by Tom and Cindy Hollander. Prior to opening their store in 1991, they spent many years creating a small craft business that consisted of handcrafting and selling decorative boxes and desk accessories. From 1993 until 2013 they created and operated Hollander's School of Book & Paper Arts which was highly regarded for its workshop offerings. Over the years they brought in many nationally known instructors and taught classes to several thousand students.
Tom and Cindy have written and published a book, Constructing and Covering Boxes. They are currently working on another related book on bookbinding and box making, which they expect to be published in 2015.
