Lunchtime at the Bookbinding Company *RERUN
We visit a bookbinding company in Tokyo that mainly makes picture books for children. As picture books come in all sorts of materials, shapes and sizes, and often have unique features like fold-out pages, each work demands special consideration. No one machine is capable of making all picture books, and that is precisely why the craft often involves a lot of careful handwork. And at lunchtime, the picture book crafting professionals charge up for the afternoon with the bento lunch they bring.
