Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


The following URL will take you to a video clip for the first of three clips on the printing of the Sydney Morning Herald in 1911. The other two clips can be viewed by clicking on the numbers just below the viewing window.
Unfortunately there is not a clip of the typesetting operation. Printers had it easy in my day, compared to these guys.
