I thought I would return to a bookbinding (sort of) theme for this week’s Friday Night Flick. As an introduction to his talk Pulled to Pieces: Life as an Independent Book Conservator, (which I attended at the Faculty of Information on October 21 in Toronto), Jeff Peachey showed this video.
He was hired to portray a bookbinder in an ad for the Samsung Note, a large-screen cellphone that can be written or drawn on with a stylus. The ad was shot, not in Jeff’s work space, but in a warehouse set up the way the art director thought a bindery should look. See how many wrong things you can spot going on in the 1.05 minutes it takes the ad to run!
It has turned into early winter here. I hope it is nicer where you are this weekend.
