Print books aren't just blocks of paper ... they're a work of art created by many, many people. The words are the authors, but the craft begins with book designers, who choose the size and method of publication ... then the unsung heroes, the formatters, who make sure the book fits neatly and readably into the space. The process involves skilled artists and master printers, and you might not realize all the skill that goes into something as simple as assembling the pages of a book. Check out this video about the craft of bookbinding ... this craftsman's entire YouTube channel, The Bookbinding Chronicles, is a fascinating look at the work that goes into the creation of the book on your shelf.
Learn how the invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg changed the world ... forever.
