Books in the Wild is back!
It’s been a wild year, friends! For a brief recap, I now live in Texas and work at BookLab2, a limited-edition bookbindery, though I still sometimes work for Flying Fish Press and am still producing my own work under the imprint of Coyote Bones Press (this information is relevant to the episode, I promise).
This episode was recorded at the end of February 2019, which means we were all recovering from another fabulous yet exhausting CODEX Symposium and Book Fair held in the Bay Area, California.
As we at BookLab II were unwinding with drinks and conversation after our trip to CODEX, I thought it would make for a great way to start off the new season of Books in the Wild. So joining me today are conservator, master bookbinder, and founder of the original BookLab and now BookLab II, Craig Jensen, and edition bookbinder and fellow BookLabber, Marc Hammonds. We discuss the history of the CODEX Symposium and Book Fair, book arts in general, how we discovered book arts, and maybe even a little bit of book gossip!
Thanks for listening! Tell all your book buddies that Books in the Wild is BACK!
