The Art Of Making A Book

Handmade BooksI’ve been in large printing plants and seen the huge presses used to print books, but that is not the ART of making a book; that is just the process that has been mechanized and modernized through the years to allow us to mass-produce books. And there is nothing wrong with that because we need to produce books en masse in order to keep the price low enough for everyone, not just the rich, to have access to these tomes.

But the ART of making a book is wondrous and challenging and stirs the muse of creation, especially for those of us who love books for their simple being.

The short video below will touch the creative spirit in all when you see the craftsmanship, skill and even, dare I say, love that goes into the art of making a book.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
