How it’s Made: Hand Crafted Books


Anthony Bourdain’s Raw Craft takes a look at Arion Press in San Francisco in its latest episode and examines how this tiny printing shop carries on the legacy of printers of the past. It’s almost astonishing to see how much work gets put into each book. From the typesetting to the proofreading (which is done aloud) to the hand stitching and everything in between, it is a lost art form that’s almost magical to see.

I recommend watching the entire video, just to see how much care and respect these guys put into their work. The finished product is remarkable and totally worth it.
