Tonight’s flick shows some of the mechanised processes used in commercial binderies. The Process of Bookbinding is K. B. Lee’s look at the operation of the North West Book Company.
For a different approach to filming a bindery in action, you might want to view Book Binding by Bill Stengel this weekend. Only 1 minute and 44 seconds long, the video is more of an art film that happens to use images from a commercial bindery. Despite the quick edits and occasionally odd shooting angles, one still gets an idea of how some different bindings are assembled.
