About iBookBinding.com

iBookBinding.com, a blog about book arts, was created in 2013. Since that moment it evolved and changed a lot. And it continues to grow. Come on board and help to make it better!

I'm Stepan Chizhov, a bookbinder, bookbinding teacher, and maker of bookbinding tools. My wife and I moved to the Netherlands early in 2018 and lived in Leiden for several years. Currently, we live in France, in Versaille, from where iBookBinding continues its work.

Bookbinding is a wonderful craft (and hobby) that has almost two millennia of history. It is a lifelong task to study bookbinding and I do it along with readers of my website and my students.

I'm sure that by becoming a patron of iBookBinding you would support not only the website itself but the whole bookbinding community, that would get more tutorials, reviews, and posts.

There are several rewards you may choose from. The first time you will be charged right after becoming a patron. The following payments are processed on the first day of each month. You continue to get access to all the perks while you are an active supporter of iBookBinding. 

Your donations would help to support iBookBinding.com covering the following expenses:
  • Editing the videos of our podcast
  • Payments to guest contributors
  • Translation into other languages (Spanish and Portuguese are the first in the line)
  • Some of the posts (like my experiments with soft weights) demand buying materials, tools and other stuff

Thanks for your help! =)
$173.79 of $400 per month
At the level of $400 per month, we plan to add a French-speaking co-host to our podcast to record episodes with our colleagues from France and other countries and regions where this language is used. Spanish and Partuguese versions are also in plans!
