Arion Press: Creating the 100th

2014

Arion Press

InCA has partnered with San Francisco’s unique Arion Press to create a new short film about the process of high-end, collector’s-item book production. Arion creates the most extraordinary, valuable and highly-regarded books in the United States, using many technologies that date back hundreds of years. As the internet, e-readers and electronic media start to challenge the very existence of “books” on paper, Arion pushes the state of Gutenberg’s art to new heights, interleaving art of every sort into books of every shape and format.

The creation of its 100th book, Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, is the feature of the first short film (13 minutes), just completed, and entered for the San Jose Shorts Film Festival.
