There's a piece of news that triggered us to discuss this topic. A medieval Hebrew prayer book is expected to be sold for about $6m at Sotheby’s. However, we want to approach this theme thoroughly.
It's probably time to switch to some other topics besides medieval manuscripts from Russia and Rus', something that we've been discussing quite a lot during our live streams. But we've seen so much interesting stuff during this summer and want to share more of it with you!
We are going to recap some of the bookish things we've seen during these past few weeks while Stepan was visiting Russia. Museums, books markets, ancient manuscripts, artists' books, and more!
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.
During our second stream, we plan to discuss some medieval Russian manuscripts from collections of Novgorod museums and talk about some bookish news.
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.
