Remembering The Lost Art Of Book Binding: Video


Remember books? They were those things people read before television and the internet and the iPad. Sometimes judges would throw them at criminals, and other times people would sit on them for an extra boost, or use them to prop open windows.

Anyway, apparently books are still in production in a land called the United Kingdom, because Telegraph reporter Glen Milner caught enough footage to make a mesmerizing and somewhat nostalgic vignette of an actually tome being put to print.

Check out Milner's video, AFTER THE JUMP.
