Oxford University Press and the Making of a Book (1925)

This is a fascinating silent film from the Oxford University press showing how books were made in 1925.

The basic printed book hasn't changed a great deal over the last century, but the methods have.

The makers of this film would probably not have conceived of the possibility of ordering a single copy of a book to be delivered to your home.

The changes in technology over the past 100 years have been quite remarkable
