Birth of a Book

Birth of a Book from Glen Milner on Vimeo.

I'm still on a book jones . . . more posts to come about and for and celebrating and making books. Here's a little film on the making of a book that I came across on the Raincoast Cottage blog. Seems apropos in light of the current happenings in the book publishing world, where words like anti-trust and monopoly and price-fixing are being bandied about. I'm still considering where my thoughts might fall in the controversy, but I have to say that while I love my e-book reader, I still also love the printed book. In my ideal world I would get to have, if I wanted a book for my library, a printed copy and as a bonus for buying the printed book I would get to have an e-book for a pittance to keep on my devices.
