After almost two years of separation, Pavel and Stepan, the hosts of iBookBinding's podcast, have finally met on the same turf. In the past few days, they have visited a multitude of museums in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg and decided to discuss some bookish objects they found there.
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.
During our second stream, we plan to discuss some medieval Russian manuscripts from collections of Novgorod museums and talk about some bookish news.
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.
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!
We return to Lucía Farías Villarreal to discuss different bookbinding styles and watch her show us some of her bindings. At the end of this podcast, Lucía takes us for a brief tour of her workshop. Please check the timestamps below to see all the styles of bindings Lucía showed us.
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.
Today we share another episode of iBookBinding's podcast and it's quite special. Our guest is Lucía Farías Villarreal, a bookbinder from Mexico. We are going to talk about Lucia's projects, state of bookbinding in Mexico

We continue our discussion of experimental bindings with book artist Daniel Kelm while he is showing some of his impressive works!
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.
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.
