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.
