Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


The two guys pictured to the left in the second photo are probably Makeup Editors rather than "subs". Comps had to remind them constantly to "point to, but don't touch" the type. Occasionally the editors would forget this jurisdictional fine point, and the type they would carry over to the makeup man would get "accidentally" knocked out of his hand. Oops!
