birth of a book

We’ve posted about books and things related to books in the past. A lot. But we found a video about the absolutely splendid art of the handmade book binding process and *had* to share.

Glen Milner filmed the team at Smith Settle bind a book from start to finish and gives us  a peek into this incredible process. At a time when most things are machine-made, this is a real art- so beautiful and rare. Read the Telegraph article here.

When we write our books, you can bet this is how they’ll be printed.
