Cover UAOlena Krushynska, TIMS member in the Ukraine, is making great efforts to place molinology on a firm footing in Ukraine. She edited the second issue of the Ukrainian Molinological Journal (sponsored by the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation), and arranged its sponsorship and distribution.

During the Symposium all the participants received a copy of this well-illustrated publication, which contains 305 pages and is partially bilingual (Ukrainian and English).

In Ukraine the journal was presented at a special Mill Day at the Zabolotnyi State Scientific Architecture and Construction Library in Kyiv, as well as in four other cities. The journal was distributed to various libraries, universities, museums and other institutions (and many mill enthusiasts all over Ukraine), and in addition radio, TV and newspaper interviews were given.

Both the first and second issue of the journal can be downloaded here:

Download the first issue (2011-2014)

Chris Gibbings , TIMS member and dear mill friend has passed away on the 7th of February. Chris was the first Country Representative for France in the TIMS Council and has written many articles for our journal International Molinology. Many will remember the article on Hoarded Tower Mills in IM 75, which he had written together with Christian Cussonneau, and his last articles on the windmills of the Campo de Cartegena in Spain in IM 89, 90 and 91. 

Chris definitely belonged to the same group of molinologists as did Claude Rivals, Paul Bauters, Michael Harverson and others, who were promoters for an ‘extended’ culturally mill awareness.
