I started my apprenticeship for New Mexico bookbinders at the age of 14 in 1955. I worked through school working 1 hour in the morning then working 1.5 hours in the afternoon and Saturdays.


In 1968, I went into the service for 18 months then back to work until 1985. I bought the business after the passing of the owner. I have bound books for about 62 years.
