Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


The reason I got into the print industry is because my brother was a newspaper compositor and had worked all through the depression.

My father who had little or no work said to me "Forget about being an artist and get a trade on the newspaper. People always need newspapers." Not so much now.

I keep my hand in by helping out at the South Coast Restoration Society's Print Museum on Australia's Gold Coast. Of course that is on hold now.
