Stop-Motion Video of Book Printing And Binding Process

Craft & Design

The more than 300 photographs that combine to make this stunning stop-motion video from januarypress are mesmerizing. They depict the production of printing a book on a Vandercook press and detail the binding of the books. I’ve always been a letterpress junkie (you can read about my incredible experience printing with my friend, Sarah, at the Pacific Northwest College of Art last spring) and watching this video made me fall in love with the process even more. I was also enamored with the process of binding the books, especially the sewing portion. Enjoy! [via NOTCOT]
