Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


QuoteMr. Sayers. Of course you could not use that for the Printing Office of the Government?
Mr. Benedict. I guarantee that in the average daily newspaper set by the Linotype machine you find from 10 to 20 errors to every one you find in the Record, and you would lose almost entirely the typographical style which makes the Record the most beautiful and perfect daily publicaion of the world, while produced under greater difficulties than are known in other daily offices
