Pictorial Webster’s: Inspiration to Completion

Filed under: Lit review — mighty red pen @ 7:15 pm

I figured out how we can atone for missing Dictionary Day last week. Check it out:

Pictorial Webster’s: Inspiration to Completion from John Carrera.

Huh? Here’s what you need to know:

“From the discovery of the 1898 International Dictionary to linotyping the entries to printing the last print on the vandercook to cutting the fingertabs of the deluxe edition, this video gives a quick overview of the process of creating the Pictorial Webster’s fine press edition.”

Oh, just watch it already. It’s awesome.

Hat tip @milkrow.
