In 1987, Istor Productions was selected by the Guild of Book Worker to produce and distribute videotapes of their annual Standards Seminars. The Guild of Book Workers' titles are available for $30.00 each, including domestic postage. These videotapes are of varying length, typically 2 hours. Some are shorter and some are longer. They were videotaped on site during the presentations and most include the question and answer period following the presentation. There has been little or no editing of these videotapes.
