A colleague at the Getty Museum Library recently shared a fabulous video Making Manuscripts : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuNfdHNTv9o 
The six minute video was produced in about 1988. It shows the entire process of making a manuscript book from preparing the skin of the animal to the finished binding by Bill Anthony. Bill died of cancer within about a year of the video production. 
Until now, I did not know that such a video existed.
