How Books are Made by Hand!

This beautiful video shows the disappearing art of making books from hand. Not just the writing aspect, no, but the craft of taking the pieces of a book we take for granted and turning them into what we know as a completed book! This craft is disappearing, becoming quickly irrelevant in today's publishing world, and I find that desperately, horribly sad. Where could one go to learn a skill like this? It's a skilled trade, so it's not exactly something you could go to college for. Plus, the cost of a printing press would make it almost impossible for the casual person to do it on their own.... What will be the norm of the publishing world tomorrow, as we move away from books and into ebooks and beyond...?
