Birth of a Book

I absolutely love this short film, Birth of a Book, which is a brief vignette on the actual creation of a real book using traditional printing methods. The film was shot, directed and edited by Glen Milner for the Daily Telegraph. It was filmed at Smith-Settle Printers, Leeds, England. The book being printed is Mango and Mimosa by Suzanne St Albans, and the edition is a reprint by Slightly Foxed Editions London. Yes, that’s Slightly Foxed the fantastic secondhand London bookshop on Gloucester Road.
