Pictorial Webster's

I've been pining over the Pictorial Webster's for months, but haven't been able to justify purchasing it. Chronicle Books also held a drawing for a copy of the Fine Press edition (featured in the video below), but didn't win. Alas. This video shows a bunch of different printmaking and book binding techniques, definitely interesting if you geek out about that sort of thing.

Or if you've ever had someone question why handbound or handprinted books are so expensive. Because that is some serious (and seriously beautiful) work right there.
