Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

Here's a great video, posted by the San Francisco Chronicle, showing Lewis Mitchell running Orion Press's collection of Monotype Casters.

QuoteIn the basement of Arion Press, where they still print books the old-fashioned way, Lewis Mitchell slid open a box of parts used to change the font size on the Monotype casting machines he has maintained for 62 years.

Unfortunately I was unable to read the article linked in the video description due to the San Francisco Chronicle trying to extort 25c out of me for "unlimited digital access."
