[The following message has been sent to Book_Arts-L, ExLibris, and to SHARP]

The Book Arts Press (BAP) has greatly reduced the prices of the videotapes
it distributes.  The startling number of orders (more than 50) we have
received in the past six months for The Making of a Renaissance Book has
made us reconsider the prices of our other videotapes, and I am pleased to
announce the following new schedule:

         From Punch to Printing Type: $50
         How to Operate a Book: $50
         Format (videotape only): $50
         Format (tube of accompanying materials): $25
         The Making of a Renaissance Book: $50
         Postage in the United States for a single item is $3.00, and $1
extra for each additional item.

Here is additional information about these videotapes:

In the 1980s, the BAP produced two videotapes on bibliographical subjects:
         From Punch to Printing Type: The Art and Craft of Hand
Punchcutting and Typecasting. With Stan Nelson (Specialist, Dept of Graphic
Arts, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution).
Directed by Peter Herdrich. 45 minutes. 1985. Original price $250 (NTSC or PAL)
         How to Operate a Book. With Gary Frost (now Conservator,
University Library, University of Iowa). An examination of the physical
structure of books, from the medieval manuscript codex to the modern
paperback. Written by Terry Belanger and Gary Frost. Directed by Peter
Herdrich. 30 minutes. 1986. Original price $250 (NTSC or PAL)

In the mid-1990s, the BAP began to distribute:
         Anatomy of a Book: I: Format. Written and presented by Terry
Belanger. First principles of bibliographical format. With accompanying
materials including a workbook, practice sheets of facsimile chainline
paper, and a set of facsimile format sheets. Directed by Peter Herdrich. 30
minutes. 1991. Original price $275 (NTSC or PAL)

Earlier this year, the BAP also began to distribute:
         The Making of a Renaissance Book. Videotape transfer of the
classic 16mm black-and-white film produced by the American Friends of the
PlantinMoretus Museum. 22 minutes. 1969. $50 (NTSC or PAL)
