A fantastic little movie about bookmaking

Pictorial Webster's: Inspiration to Completion from John Carrera on Vimeo.

This movie is amazing - telling the story of finding an old encyclopedia with pictures, and then remaking it from the original image blocks with old-fashioned methods.  Each copy is over $4000. It describes the process of printing and bookbinding in fascinating detail. PP found this. The Linotype machine is my favorite.
