How Ink Is Made

It is easy to get caught up in the frenzy of the newest gadget, but ink is everywhere. This short film demonstrates how technically complex, fascinating and beautiful the ink-making process is. Touch devices are getting more amazing every day, but nothing beats the tactile joy of holding something printed on beautiful paper with gorgeous inks.

Great find by @laughingsquid.
