The birth of a book

Call it old school, or artisanal, or a demonstration of loving craft: here’s a video showing how a book is put together using traditional printing methods. It was shot at Smith-Settle Printers in Leeds. The book being printed is Suzanne St Albans’ Mango and Mimosa.

From the Daily Telegraph.
