Oxford English Dictionary: A 1925 silent film about the making of a book is unearthed by the Oxford University Press archive.

Long before digitization threatened print, mechanization enabled it. The Oxford University Press archive has unearthed this wonderful silent film, made in 1925 by the Federation of British Industry, showing the step-by-step creation of a book. The movie employs title cards, clever camerawork, and even animation to bring the viewer into the process—from casting type by hand to stitching together the binding to pressing on gold leaf.
