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.
Posts by Stepan Chizhov:
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.
It's probably time to switch to some other topics besides medieval manuscripts from Russia and Rus', something that we've been discussing quite a lot during our live streams. But we've seen so much interesting stuff during this summer and want to share more of it with you!
Rebecca Padgham is an artist and bookmaker from the UK. Initially, we invited Rebecca after she posted in a bookish Facebook community a request for some advice concerning trimming books for a person with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder.
We are going to recap some of the bookish things we've seen during these past few weeks while Stepan was visiting Russia. Museums, books markets, ancient manuscripts, artists' books, and more!
After almost two years of separation, Pavel and Stepan, the hosts of iBookBinding's podcast, have finally met on the same turf. In the past few days, they have visited a multitude of museums in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg and decided to discuss some bookish objects they found there.
We invited Andreas Maroulis, a Greek bookbinder currently living in the UK. Andreas won an award at the Designer Bookbinders Competition recently with his binding "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck.
During our second stream, we plan to discuss some medieval Russian manuscripts from collections of Novgorod museums and talk about some bookish news.
Designer Bookbinders has a competition for their UK-based members. This year, Richard Beadsmoore was among the competition winners, taking three prizes with his two bindings. In this video, we discuss these bindings.
