    I loved this video! I love how his interest is tied to his own childhood and the crazy detail work involved. I want the book even more now…

    I spent the whole weekend at a fine press book fair here in Oxford, and this video was all I could talk about. I love printing, but I can’t imagine organizing that many images! Thank you so much for sharing (and love the new redesign, by the way – very classy).
