How is ink made? I didn't quite believe a description of this video, that ink making had a very personal touch to it. Were they going to crush up pigment on a stone by hand for industrial purposes? But the mesmerising quality of the process captures something that really makes our printed world the vibrant, textured brilliance that it is today.

A long video, but worth the incredible effort used to make the ink we take for granted. Also check out the blog post about Canon's playful use of ink and sound.


  1. How interesting! It's also fun to explore factory.

  2. I love how they edited the music into the rhythm of the process.
