Friday Night Flicks: The Oxford University Press and The Making Of A Book

One of a series of films examining various aspects of British manufacturing, this 1925 silent film was produced by the Federation of British Industry. At just under 18 minutes, it is longer than my usual Friday Night Flicks, but I think you will find it worth the time. The deafening noise of the print room is absent, replaced by a sound track of period music. The OUP is still headquartered in the building shown in the film, but I believe much of the production work now takes place in other locations.

 

Have a good weekend!
