Richard Davies of AbeBooks, the pioneering ecommerce bookseller, interviews Sandra Hindman for Les Enluminures' first crossover podcast with Behind the Bookshelves. His interesting profile of her includes questions and answers such as: Does she think of herself as an academic, a bookseller, an art expert, or what? When and why did she start her business? How does she find her material? What does medieval jewelry have to do with medieval manuscripts? What are a few of her favorite things? What is a book of hours? And, finally, what is she reading?This conversation was published by Abe Books April 7th.
Les Enluminures podcasts transform the past into the present with untold stories, research, science, and histories of Medieval and Renaissance artworks through illuminating lectures, gallery talks, in-house research, and interviews with collectors and scholars.
