This time we invited Richard Minsky to our podcast, a bookbinder, book artist, teacher, and many things more. In the end, the episode became a three-parter, as we recorded with Richard for more than 3 hours.
Both Pavel and Stepan have some experience of visiting inspiring and unusual bookshops in different countries and catering to different audiences. We have also crawled the internet to look for the opinions of other people.
Today our bookish guest is Armina Ghazaryan, a freelance graphic designer interested in typography and branding. Currently, Armina lives in Ghent, and that's where most of the examples of the street typography discussed in this video come from
We return to Jordan Jay Tanner, a bookbinder and book conservator from Kansas City, MO, to talk more about bookbinding, book conservation, collecting books about books, and other things
This time during our live stream we are talking about some samples of Glagolitic script from the 14th century, 20th century, and modernity. That's, of course, besides the news, and some other bookish things!
We are streaming live from Boekkunstbeurs, the Book Arts Fair in Leiden!
That's the first part of our discussion, but we have covered quite a lot here: from Jay's studies and searching for the best path to build his career, to collecting books about bookbinding and spending too much money on book hunting.
This time we found all the bookish objects and themes from the new Dune movie directed by Denis Villeneuve. In this video, we talk about bookbinding, languages, libraries, and handwriting of the cinematic universe of Dune.
This time we do not have a main theme for our live stream. However, we have several smaller themes each one of which is equally interesting in our opinion.
Stepan just went to London for a couple of days and had a chance to attend two exhibitions of design bindings held at the Maggs Bros. antiquarian bookstore.
This time we are talking about the Boekkunstbeurs, a book arts fair held in Leiden. And our guest is Karin Cox, one of the persons in charge of this fair.
There is some news related to different bookish fairs, classes, exhibitions and all other sorts of events. Are they finally returning or do we still have to rely on virtual events? What formats and approaches should we keep after this year of lockdowns?
Today we start something new at iBookBinding. This is the first episode of the Spanish version of our podcast. And the first guest is Josep Cambras, a bookbinder and bookbinding teacher from Barcelona, Spain.
There's a piece of news that triggered us to discuss this topic. A medieval Hebrew prayer book is expected to be sold for about $6m at Sotheby’s. However, we want to approach this theme thoroughly.
With this episode of our Bookish Talk, it was the first time for us when we mixed up not only the time difference with the guest but even the date. That happened because Angaea Cuna is a book artist living in Hawaii.
