We return to Kate Holland to discuss many things related to modern bookbinding. Competitions, the possibility of revival of the craft in the post-covid world, drawing the young generation's attention to book arts, and much more!
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.
This episode of our Bookish Talk is a bit unusual because we have a guest. Rachel Ward-Sale is an award-winning bookbinder with many years of experience and the current president of the Designer Bookbinders.
During this Bookish Talk, we discuss the Basler Papiermühle -- a late medieval papermill turned paper, printing, and bookbinding museum. Stepan visited this museum a couple of years ago. Still, it should give a good sense of what it looks and feels like.
We discuss two objects from my collection. This book and... something else. Both of them have something in common: after I got them, I searched the internet and found them being sold on auctions in the previous years.
Often you can hear from a bookbinder or any other book artisan that they have a small workshop and what are the pros and cons of having a small working space. Well, here's a 1.5 square meter printing house.
Is it wrong to buy a book at a low price when you know its real (high) value? How do the street book sales in Bucharest and Sofia look like? What's special about the book market in the Hague?
This is the beginning of several talks we dedicated to antique book markets in different European countries and cities. We start with some book markets in Moscow and the Netherlands (mainly the market in The Hague).
