The Birth of a Book

Here is a beautiful video about the more traditional way of making a book produced by Glen Milner, for the Daily Telegraph. Quite a magical time in the evolution of the printed word. Shot at Smith-Settle Printers, Leeds, England. Slightly Foxed have stepped aside from the ebook stampede to publish beautifully bound hardbacks that recall a bygone age — and they sell like hot cakes. This limited edition version is sold out…and the book in it’s regular form is sold out as well. 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
