Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


I first saw this movie in 1962 with a number of Linotype sales people and mechanics. The mechanics were making comments like "How many hours did you have to film the machine to get a run of 15 lines a minute without a problem. The Elektron was improved over the next couple of years. I ended up liking the machine but it did cause me a lot of frustration in the early days.
