Ten Years of Organization and Printing: Pictorial Websters

The San Francisco Center for the Book is a big fan of the Pictorial Websters, so of course we were smitten with this mini-documentary on Vimeo Pictorial Webster’s: Inspiration to Completion

From the discovery of the 1898 International Dictionary to Linotyping the entries to printing the last print on the Vandercook to cutting the fingertabs of the deluxe edition, this video gives a quick overview of the process of creating the Pictorial Webster’s fine press edition.
