This time on iBookBinding's Podcast, we discuss the material and structural history of bookbinding. Our guest is Emily K. Bell, a book conservator. This is the first part of the three we recorded a while ago. Some of the things have changed in the lives of our guest and of the hosts of the podcast. But the historical/bookish part definitely remains actual.
This time we invited bookbinder Zeenat Azmi to discuss the state of bookbinding in Eritrea (and not only!) We covered topics from traditional bookbinding styles of the region and the use of papyrus to the influence of Islam and Christianity in Eritrea.
In the second part of our talk with Kate Holland, we discussed education for bookbinders and the influence of art and craft on the economy. But most of the time we spend going around Kate's workshop and discussing tools, materials, and techniques.
This time we invited Kate Holland, an award-winning bookbinder from the UK, who is also one of the people in charge of the Designer Bookbinders UK Competition.
For this Holiday Special episode of the iBookBinding's podcast, we invited Mark Cockram, Kate Holland, and Richard Minsky to talk about the outgoing 2021 and incoming 2022, drink some wine, and have a couple of laughs.

Here is the last part of our talk with Richard Minsky, a bookbinder and book artist from the US. Richard takes us for a tour of his studio, shows us some tools and contraptions. The rest of the time we spend discussing some of his striking bindings: more than a dozen of books in total.
We just uploaded the second part of our talk with Richard Minsky. There are many interesting stories told there. Richard describes some of his first bookbinding and artistic projects there.
