Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dan J Killoy got in touch by email with the following:


I am trying to locate a full page newspaper chase, with chase key. I have been in the newspaper business for over 45 years, started out as a printer in the ITU back in 1964, spent 7 years in the hot type system, I saved the last page one plate from the letter press at the Montana Standard in Butte June 21, 1970 I have it in my office, a real conservation piece. I am now trying to put together a piece of art that would include old wood type, fairchild photos, and lead type. I have put all of this together and I would like to put it together in a full page chase. Maybe you can help me locate one of these.

Can anyone help out?
