Beautiful hand-crafted books by Arion Press

Anthony Bourdain visits San Francisco's Arion Press, one of the last shops in the world where an entire book is created by hand. Blocks of text are assembled from cast typefaces. Pages are printed one at a time on centuries-old letterpress printing equipment; the pages are stitched together on the spot. Two to three limited edition books are published per year. Each is conceptually unique.
