Post How a book used to be made
Here's a cool old 10 minute video showing the process of producing a hardback book before the digital days.

In a sign of the times, here's a photo I took this evening of a lonely copy of Bill's book on the shelf of a Borders in Stafford, VA currently holding a going-out-of-business sale.
