Friday Night Flicks: Documentary of a HK Craftsman

This YouTube video by HotPot features some lovely footage of Hong Kong bookbinder Siu Yue/TT at work. It includes some shots of her backing cloth with paper at the beginning, and there are also some detailed shots of her decorating the spine of the book with sections of weaving.



Perhaps you will spend some time adding decorative touches to a binding this weekend, or at least appreciating the extra care and attention that someone else has put into their work.
