Techniton Politeia – interviews with artisans

“Techniton Politeia” means city (or community) of artisans in Greek.

One of this blog’s goals since its beginnings has been to bring people closer to the art and craft of bookbinding and other associated crafts. To make them understood and appreciated.

Following the philosophy described above, I present you with a series of interviews of talented artisans, as an invitation to step into their workspaces and explore their world of creativity and beauty.
