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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
This time we return to Lori Sauer to discuss her project BINDING re:DEFINED and the importance of teaching and learning different bookbinding approaches and techniques. During this episode, Lori shows many unusual book structures
In the first part of this talk, we discussed Hannah's architectural binding. But that wasn't all. We lingered a bit more to talk about Hannah's books in public collections, apprenticeships, and new workshop space that will allow Hannah to run more teaching programs at her studio.
We return to the design bindings made for the shortlisted books of the Booker Prize in 2020. This time we talk to Lori Sauer about her work with the book Shadow King by Maaza Mengiste (Canongate Books, 2020).
We invited a British bookbinder Hannah Brown to discuss two of her projects. The first one is a binding with architectural motifs she made several years ago. The other is a board she recently made for a Designer Bookbinders' project.
Kate Holland is a bookbinder from the UK. She was one of the seven bookbinders who worked on the six bindings made for the books shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2020. And she was the second person who worked on this binding you saw in the preview (picking up from Derek Hood).
We have another Bookish Talk with a guest today. Ben Elbel was the first person we interviewed on our large podcast, and now he returns to talk about a new tutorial he recently announced.
