Beautiful findings: Birth of a Book


This short video by Glen Milner was shot for the Daily Telegraph at Smith-Settle Printers, Leeds, England. It captures the process that's behind the production of a book using traditional methods. It's quite interesting to see how many people are involved in the making of these books (would you ever have thought that such lovely and well-dressed ladies would be behind book binding?) and the succession of different little tasks that have to be done and re-done to perfection to keep each book the same as the next one. And besides of being highly interesting, the video is executed in a very beautiful manner!
