These brief video clips show the printing and production of a 24 page book.

The typesetting is carried out on a ‘C4 Intertype’ machine at the premises of D.Boden Typesetting where the pages are made up and put onto galleys for transporting to the Crescent Card Company.

The pages are laid out on a ‘Stone’, ensuring they are all in the correct place to make a folded section.

They are then locked-up in a ‘Chase’ using ‘Quoins’ & ‘Furniture’.

Once completed, this is referred to as a ‘Forme’ and it is the ‘Forme’ that is put onto the press for printing.
