Since 1991, Hollander's has been nationally recognized as specialists in both decorative papers and bookbinding supplies. Their retail store is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan and stocks over 2,000 unique decorative papers, as well as many traditional artist papers. Most of these papers are imported from around the world and include large collections of Italian Florentine prints, Japanese papers, and hand marble collections.
Hollander's hand bookbinding supplies are geared towards the beginning and intermediate levels. In addition to carrying various leathers and bookcloth, Hollander's offers a wide range of adhesives, small hand tools, and book repair supplies. They also sell several types of book board and offer a unique service of custom board cutting.
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 of making and selling decorative boxes, books, and desk accessories. From 1993 through 2013, they operated Hollander's School of Book & Paper Arts, where they taught bookbinding, book arts, and paper arts classes to several thousand students. Look for a return of some classes in 2017.
They recently celebrated their store's 25th anniversary.
