Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


The Plain Dealer newspaper of Cleveland, Ohio, USA, as part of the 150th  anniversary (1842-1992),  has on exhibition a colour enhanced old Linotype machine. It's a real lollypop.

Absolutely bizarre George!

Looks like they're trying to make it some kind of swinging 60s psychedelic item!

Looks a little lacking in the distributor department.

How will they ever manage to strip all that paint and put it 'right' again?
