Making a book – the old way

Hi everyone,

I've just stumbled on this fascinating video showing how a book is made using a printing press and traditional methods. It makes you appreciate how easy it is to get books these days, and how much difference technology has made to the distribution of knowledge over the centuries - from handwritten books illustrated by monks, to the early printing press and eventually to mass production and now print-on-demand. And don't even mention e-books!
