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!

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.
We are trying a new format. During this stream, we plan to talk about Pavel's recent visit to an exhibition Siena in the early Renaissance' that has opened a few days ago in Moscow. We will also discuss some iBookBinding news and probably answer some questions.
Earlier this year, Mark Cockram created an unusual exhibition space for books at his studio that is only 76x34x18.5 cm in size. Since that moment he has had several exhibitions there. And that's exactly what we are going to discuss during this Bookish Talk!
We return to Lucía Farías Villarreal to discuss different bookbinding styles and watch her show us some of her bindings. At the end of this podcast, Lucía takes us for a brief tour of her workshop. Please check the timestamps below to see all the styles of bindings Lucía showed us.
A bit more than a year ago, we recorded our second podcast video, and our guest was Todd Davis, a bookbinder from Boston, MA. We returned to Todd a year later to discuss how was it to survive the first lockdown and what new projects this past year have brought to him.
Today we share another episode of iBookBinding's podcast and it's quite special. Our guest is Lucía Farías Villarreal, a bookbinder from Mexico. We are going to talk about Lucia's projects, state of bookbinding in Mexico
