We have been very excited this week to receive photos from CPI William Clowes of this year's Red Book actually on the presses.
The photos show the complete production process, from text coming off the huge printing presses, through the folding machine where it goes in at one end as long lengths of paper and emerges at the other as a complete stitched book block (minus cover).
The case blocking machine adds the title and author text to the cover and produces 20 covers a minute, which quickly fills up the pallets waiting to receive them. Book blocks and cases are fed into the case binder and complete books emerge 40 seconds later!
All that then remains is a quick trip through the shrinkwrapping machine to ensure your bright, shiny new edition of The Family Court Practice 2015 reaches you in pristine condition!
