Making Books with Traditional Printing Methods


We’re now in the age of digital magazines, books. Literally everything around us turns to digital. Heck, this blog is not printed on a piece of paper at some print shop. It’s good in some ways, like  decreased use of paper, therefore less cutting of trees, being able to carry thousands of books and magazines in your bag, etc. But the traditional way of ‘making things’ is what amazes and will amaze us…

This video is made for the Daily Telegraph, shot at Smith-Settle Printers, Leeds, England. The book being printed is Suzanne St Albans’ ‘Mango and Mimosa’ published as part of the Slightly Foxed series. Shot, directed & edited by Glen Milner.
