Track 20: The sound of making a book cover. Guillotining, attaching the acid etched plate to the foiling machine, silver foil debossing, gluing and measurement discussion for the book ‘The Erroneous Disposition of the People’. Hackney. 1:37

The Henningham Family Press make original, handmade books and prints. David and Ping Henningham live in a terraced house in Hackney with their baby. Upstairs, they have a room where they do some of their printing work with a studio elsewhere for larger work. After I recorded the ‘sounds of making’ for the record, I talked to David about some of the machines he uses and the book they were making called ”The Erroneous Disposition of the People’ by David Barnes, Eddie Farrell, James Wilkes, Julie Rafalski and David Henningham.
