Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Despite being essential technology to their operations, newspaper and magazine publishers rarely inform their readers about the technology behind the process that regularly delivers their content to readers. It's a bit like leaving children to believe milk comes only in cartons. An interviewee on the radio today was describing how a dairy farmer's wife he knew preferred milk out of bottle rather than straight from the cow much to he husband's chagrin.

This is how The Australian Women's Weekly breathlessly announced to its readers it had installed a pioneering gravure press in 1936.
