Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

If anyone hasn't seen "Linotype: The Film" yet, you're in for a real treat.

An organisation called Indie Rights Movies for Free has posted the full movie (all 1 hour 16 minutes of it) on Youtube, so I've posted it here.

Of course, if you want to support the makers you can buy it on DVD here: Linotype: The Film

So, get the popcorn in, sit back and enjoy this real treat. Don't forget to press the "full screen" button if you're watching on desktop!

A great film, with excellent graphics!

When it was newly-released I was doing part-time work for Urban Cottage Industries at Mytholmroyd, who at the time were still using Intertypes to produce slugs for hot-foil work, and they arranged a gala premiere showing at the cinema in Hebden Bridge, with attendees who had registered being presented with a 24pt slug of their name(s) set in Metroblack. We had a full house! I set the type for the tickets, albeit in smaller sizes of Gill Sans.
