'Birth of a Book' is a video that shows how books are made from start to finish. Nowadays, eBooks and tablets have taken over the traditional form of reading and those who carry books are considered "ancient."

A good book can make you read for hours on end, but the Birth of a Book video is even more alluring; it demonstrates how books are made and not what the book is about. This is something that doesn't cross one's mind when picking up a book.

Smith-Settle Printers based in Leeds, England, shows how one book titled 'Mango and Mimosa' by Suzanne St Albans is made. Rediscover literature and see the beauty behind the traditional forms of book making.
