The Book Makers
dir. James Kennard, 2020
NR, 58 min, USA, in English.
In a time where the fate of the paper book is in question, this film profiles an eclectic group of bibliophiles dedicated to keeping books alive and reframing the concept of the book itself. Revel in the meticulous process of creating hand-crafted books, traditionally and unconventionally. Traveling from New York to Germany and culminating at the annual marketplace pilgrimage of Codex Book Fair in San Francisco, we learn about the obscure world of book artists as well as the digital libraries of the Internet Archive. A visually captivating experience chronicling where paper books have been and where they might go.
