Ink&Paper (video)

I saw this on peachfarmpress and am compelled to re-post so all four of my readers will be able to see it. It's a well produced  peek into the business of paper and printing as told by two gentlemen operating their own shops in Los Angeles, CA: McManus & Morgan Paper and Aardvark Letterpress. My favorite part is when Cary of Aardvark questions aloud why anyone  in this economy would spend so much money on hand printed paper-goods.   A question I think about often is what the value is of hand produced practical goods? (to be discussed  further in another entry)

Not remotely related but hilarious: Poking good fun at the notion of  artisan products, 'Portlandia' produced a sketch about an artisanal lightbulb maker. Nearly peed my pants funny.
