I am frantically scrambling to make my house presentable for many costumed folks (not superheroes, though that would be totally awesome) and so while I did some embroidery over the weekend, it escaped my notice to photograph it to share (probably I missed this in between telling the husband which parts of the house needed his help and then going through boxes and boxes of papers I have saved for some unknown reason). So then I did some blog-reading this morning and found this gem of a video, via Drawn!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.
