    Like me perhaps, one of those things you never even thought to wonder how is was done.
    Fascinating process to watch.

    Wasn't that era of documentary making by the to-and-froms just the pits!!! had me thinking of Peter Sellers and "Balham, gateway to the south"!

    Fasinating process. What would be interesting would be to see how they did the edges of bound books.

    Clearly they did not want to relinquish control and trust the practitioners to have something intelligent to say about it.


    The ever funny Peter Sellers.
    I'm more familiar with his work in The Goon Show and movies.

    There are some great documentaries surfacing on Utube these days, often they are unintentionally more informative of the times than the subject they set out explain.

    The line from this one "The business employs mostly young craftsmen and woman" probably would not slip by today. :)
