pictorial webster's dictionary

Pictorial Webster's: Inspiration to Completion from John Carrera on Vimeo.

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.

My mind has been blown to pieces.

Chronicle Books worked with John Carrera to create a stunning trade edition which is available now. For those US residents who are feeling lucky, enter for a chance to win a copy of the fine press edition.
