Our seventh guest is Sophia Siobhan Wolohan Bogle, a bookbinder and book restorer from Ashland, Oregon. With her project Save Your Books, Sophia is also spending a lot of time educating people about book repair and restoration!
Our guest this time is Ingeir Djuivik, a graphic design teacher, and an award-winning hobbyist bookbinder from Norway. We have already talked to Ingeir not once on our website, but this is the first video interview we made with him.

Our podcast's guest is Rita Udina, a book and paper conservator from Barcelona, Spain. Rita shows her fantastic studio, we talk about her projects, and answer questions that were sent by our followers!
