Hollander's School Contemplates New Direction After 20 Years
Since 1994, we have taught over 1,000 workshops as Hollander's School of Book & Paper Arts. The response has been outstanding and we are very proud of the support we've had from the 1000's of students who have taken classes. During the past 20 years, we have been fortunate to bring in many highly accomplished instructors from all over the country, but we have also had equally talented local instructors teach for us. In addition, we can't say enough about the great students who have taken Hollander's workshops, many of which have become our good friends.
Although we are not certain that will happen in the workshop space following our last term, we have been given a lot of thought to the future and are still contemplating new ideas. We will keep you posted both on our web site and through our Workshops & Store Events Newsletter which you can sign up to receive below.
A New Books Art Center in Ann Arbor
boundedition is taking up where Hollander's left off and going to the next level. We are very proud to announce that a new book arts center has been created by several of our past instructors and it promises to offer something for everyone. It is a community book arts center offering classes in bookbinding, skill building workshops, exhibitions and access to emerging technologies in a vibrant open studio environment. From letterpress to laser cutting, boundedition provides avenues for creative expression and collaboration among a rich variety of artists, printmakers, craftsmen, designers, calligraphers and other folks who are passionate about exploring book and paper arts and trades.
Located on the south side of Ann Arbor near the new Costco, boundedition’s letterpress studio is managed by printmaker Jim Horton, who will be on hand to train and assist members. The letterpress studio features a range of vintage printing presses and equipment. Book artist Barbara Brown will lead the boundedition bookbinding program, sharing her expertise in alternative constructions, artist’s books, and bringing in guest instructors to inspire and educate. Collaborating with designer and maker, Laura Earle, traditional techniques meet emerging technologies to generate new expressions in the book and paper arts. Product designer Tom Veling will mentor members with skill building workshops designed to foster specialized aspects of bookbinding and printing. Bookseller Gene Alloway offers experienced perspectives on book history and all things bibliophile.
