This is beautiful.  From Jacket Copy and Coudal Partners, a video in 3,000 photos of the creation of 35 handcrafted copies of one woman’s book, “The Complex of All Things.”

Though I’m not one to harp on the death of print (not to be confused with the death of print corporations, plz), the intricacy of this process is astounding and my head newly spins at the thought of Google Books, Twitter fests, and micro-blogging and I want to holler, “slow down!”  It’s like yoga for a book.  Child’s pose.
