My boyfriend sent me this link about an artisan book maker who is hand-setting a three-volume set of Pride and Prejudice with archival materials, hand-drawn wood-block engravings, foundry-cast type, and a century-old press.

I can't afford a set, but made a small donation to this artistic legacy endeavor. I know there are lots of readers and some big Jane Austin fans here, so I thought I'd share in case someone else found it interesting or might care to contribute. The smallest donation option is $2, which is very cool.

The made-by-hand, whether book-setting and binding or knitting or what have you, is under-appreciated in our current social climate. I find it so worthwhile that artisans are working hard to preserve our heritage.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. What I loved most about the writeup was that the printer needs to buy "a bolt of silk bookcloth". Just the thought that there is such a thing as silk bookcloth makes me happy.
