Today we start something new at iBookBinding. This is the first episode of the Spanish version of our podcast. And the first guest is Josep Cambras, a bookbinder and bookbinding teacher from Barcelona, Spain.
Rebecca Padgham is an artist and bookmaker from the UK. Initially, we invited Rebecca after she posted in a bookish Facebook community a request for some advice concerning trimming books for a person with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder.
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.
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.
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

Kaija Rantakari is a poet, bookbinder, and book artist from Helsinki (Finland). In this episode of the iBookBinding's Podcast, we discuss her artist's books. And try to find that line when an object isn't a book anymore. Is there a line of that sort, anyway?
We already shared two parts of our talk with Dimitris Koutsipetsidis, a bookbinder from Athens (Greece). This time Dimitris takes us for a tour of his studio and shows us some of the tools he makes.
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).
Time for the big news! On the 1st of April, Stepan and his wife Sofya are moving to France. And that's not some April Fool's Day thing. This, of course, means that iBookBinding is also moving to France =)
In the first part of our talk with Dimitris Koutsipetsidis, a bookbinder from Athens (Greece), we discussed the things that brought him to making books. This time we take it one step further and Dimitris shows us some of his bindings and tells us the stories of the making of these books.
