Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Hi all

Has anyone ever seen one of these?

There must have been a demand, the master for the punch would have been fun to create.
Cheers, John

My guess is that these were made by photoengraving.  It would just be a line cut in copper with the signature in intaglio, then machined to fit the matrix slide holder.
