Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Wayne and I, both Linotype mechanics, were asked to help a local Print Museum to have a look at their 1923 model 8 and get it running. Now circulating matrices but it is still a job in hand. As they knew little about the Linotype, I made up this notice and laminated it so it could be displayed on or beside the machine. I decided to put it on Metal Type as I thought someone might be in need of a similar notice or just to read a brief overview of the Linotype.
