The 20th episode of iBookBinding's podcast will be published in three parts because we are talking to Daniel Kelm, an amazing bookbinder and book artist with almost 45 years of experience. Daniel is an amazing speaker and teacher and shares lots of amazing stories during this discussion.
This time we have two guests who work at the same conservation business - The Conservators, Ltd. in London. Ashleigh Brown works in paper and photograph conservation, while Angelina Bakalarou focuses more on paintings and paper conservation.
Kaija Rantakari is a poet, bookbinder, and book artist from Helsinki (Finland). In this episode of the iBookBinding's Podcast, we discuss her artist's books. And try to find that line when an object isn't a book anymore. Is there a line of that sort, anyway?
We already shared two parts of our talk with Dimitris Koutsipetsidis, a bookbinder from Athens (Greece). This time Dimitris takes us for a tour of his studio and shows us some of the tools he makes.
Time for the big news! On the 1st of April, Stepan and his wife Sofya are moving to France. And that's not some April Fool's Day thing. This, of course, means that iBookBinding is also moving to France =)
In the first part of our talk with Dimitris Koutsipetsidis, a bookbinder from Athens (Greece), we discussed the things that brought him to making books. This time we take it one step further and Dimitris shows us some of his bindings and tells us the stories of the making of these books.

More bindings, amazing boxes, and even some smoke-like marbling on silk by Chena River Marblers. After discussing books, Peter took us for a tour of his enormous workshop! Tools, workbenches, book projects in works -- all this and more!
This time we return to Praxis Bindery, the studio of Peter Geraty. He shows us some of his bindings, discusses techniques, and shares some memories of old projects. In the second part of this podcast, Peter will show even more bindings and take us for a tour of his workshop.
In the second part of our talk Kathy Abbott takes us for a tour of her workshop and shows some of her bindings. We also talk about conservation aspects of her creative projects and Tomorrow's Past — a project she's been a part of for some years already.

We have something special for you! This time, we invited some of our previous guests to discuss what was happening to them and their projects since the last time we had a chance to talk: Rita Udina, Mark Cockram, and Ingeir Djuvik
Peter was a guest on our podcast recently, and we just published the second part of our talk. Every one of the binding Peter showed us during our talk has bindings has something special about it.
Peter has been making books since the 1970s. He's a bookbinding teacher and owner of a bookbinding shop not far from Boston, Massachusetts. Meet Peter Geraty, head of Praxis Bindery and Director of Integrated Studies at the American Academy of Bookbinding in Telluride, Colorado.
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.
