This is a film about the book. The art and the craft of making the object which has always been and is part of our life. Starting as a sheet of paper, it gets all the violence of the machinery, like press power, folding, cuttings and bindings, in order to be finalized as unity which encloses words. This unity is called “book”. But, what really makes the book a book? The “voice” of Stéphane Mallarmé narrates some of the answers of this question.
