We take the book, as a physical product, for granted a bit. Me and Josh were discussing how they made books one evening which led to much watching of videos on the internet. It’s a fascinating procedure with plenty of variation. I’m so impressed by the speed of the inkjets Clays (who print nearly every book I read) use for their digital printing solution. Now why can’t I have a printer that works that well?
The more traditional, plate printing is also fascinating, as well as the binding process, and adding foil, even the ingenious way they print 32 pages on one sheet. There’s even a video here showing how Slightly Foxed make their books by hand.
