In 1986, Tom and Cindy Hollander began a small business from their home, making and selling handcrafted boxes and desk accessories. In 1991 they opened a small retail store in the Kerrytown Shops in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Gradually the store expanded to 10,000 square feet, including a large basement studio and workshop facility.
About the Store
Hollander’s has grown to become nationally recognized as a leading source for unique decorative papers with over 2,000 in stock. In addition, Hollander's is a major source of hand-bookbinding tools and supplies, including a large selection of book cloths, leathers, adhesives, and binder's board.
Between 1993 and 2013, Hollander's established an extensive year-round program of workshops. Located directly below their retail store, Hollander's School of Book and Paper Arts taught classes to several thousand students over the years. Although the workshop portion of the business recently ended, we offer a comprehensive listing of where you can still take book and paper arts classes.
Along with decorative papers and bookbinding supplies, our retail store has a greatly expanded collection of art supplies and artist papers. In addition, Hollander's store also contains a large and locally popular stationery section. We sell a wide variety of greeting cards, note cards, photo albums, journals, address books, gift wrap, ribbon, and unique gift items.
