In a new video series from “How To Make Everything” — a Youtube channel dedicated to finding out how to break down complex production processes and make things from scratch — you can watch Andy George create a book using very traditional techniques. And when I say traditional, I mean traditional. He creates papyrus, parchment, ink and leather book covers by hand. And be warned, some parts may make you a bit squeamish. “The How to Make a Book” series is divided into eight separate videos. If you click play above, you can watch them all from start to finish.
