This time we return to our Booker Prize bindings series to discuss the binding of A Passage North by Anuk Arudpragasam which was created by Tom McEwan. Tom is an award-winning bookbinder and the first Scottish guest on our podcast.
For the second part of the series dedicated to the bindings of the 2021 Booker Prize, we invited Kate Holland, to talk about her binding of “The Promise” by Damon Galgut -- this year's winner.
Every year, six Designer Bookbinders' fellows are chosen to create six unique bindings for the books shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Our first guest is Mark Cockram with his binding for "No One Is Talking About This" by Patricia Lockwood.
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).
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).
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.
Every year six Designer Bookbinders’ Fellows each bind one of the six titles shortlisted for the Booker Prize for Fiction. Designed and completed in 4-5 weeks, these bindings are presented to the authors on the night of the Booker award ceremony.
