How to make a book

For those of us who still have a love affair with old books (even if most of the ones I buy now are via my Kindle) this is a wonderful video. I don't know anything about it's origins, but it's available via a Facebook page version, without any music. And it was posted to YouTube, with some music added. Take your pick.

I've got a lot of those old, leather-covered books in my collection, but I never really thought about what goes into putting them together. It's fascinating to watch a craftsman put it all together.

You can see the original post on Facebook (sans music) via the link below.

And I've embedded the YouTube version (to which someone added music) below.
