iBB Podcast #12.2 – Ivan Gulkov – Workshop Tour and Show & Tell

The second part of our talk with Ivan is suddenly much shorter compared to our standard episodes. But I’m sure it will be interesting to watch anyway! Our guest shows his tabletop press here and shows many of his prints. Along the way, we discuss the technology and history of printing and even an illegal underground communist publishing house from 1905! Watch the full bookish talk about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQv_l…
