The story of how a book is created, from author’s bright idea to the delivery of finished printed copies. Author and illustrator Rob Lewis, twice winner of the Tir na nOg prize, uses animal characters from his own picture books to play the parts of author, illustrator and editor, but photos are also used to show people involved in the process at the publishing house and printing works. Happily this author receives a proper contract and royalties, and the printing company is a family business celebrating its 120 anniversary in rural Wales. Simple explanation is given of the actual printing process, from the scanning of artwork to plate-making in four separate colours, showing how paper is fed through the 4-colour press, as well as the finishing processes of folding, stitching and laminating. Useful for background information before an author visit.
