We are streaming live from Boekkunstbeurs, the Book Arts Fair in Leiden!
This time we are talking about the Boekkunstbeurs, a book arts fair held in Leiden. And our guest is Karin Cox, one of the persons in charge of this fair.
We are trying a new format. During this stream, we plan to talk about Pavel's recent visit to an exhibition Siena in the early Renaissance' that has opened a few days ago in Moscow. We will also discuss some iBookBinding news and probably answer some questions.
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!
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.
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?
I'm sure you know this feeling when you see something that really connects with you but are uncertain whether you are ready to spend money on it. That's precisely what happened to me with one of Luise Blackbird's prints.
This weekend was very tiring and intense. But these two days were among the most inspiring and wonderful working days of the year. All because I participated in the Book Arts Fair in Leiden (Netherlands.)
It's only three weeks left until Boekkunstbeurs, a fair organized by the bookbinders' and printers' guilds of the Netherlands. It means there's not much time to prepare, but enough time to plan a trip and buy a plane ticket!
Les Amis de la Reliure Originale is an association that promotes design binding in France. For 26 years it organizes an annual Ephemeral Exhibition to bring together the best French and European professional bookbinders.
