Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Dave Hughes

Thanks for that posting Listohan.

Very interesting to listen to.

I thought the interviewer was going to be a bit lacking when she asked: "What was the first font?" - but it provoked, I guess the obvious, answer.

I was most interested in the section on the Doves Bible.

I'd never heard of this before. But, I have, in the past, enjoyed many a decent pint of Fuller's ESB beer in the riverside pub that the font was named after!

Yes, that first question did not sound like a good start, but I'm glad I stuck with it. The Book Show is a daily program and Ramona has to deal with an incredible range of subjects... with help from her production team.

Much like many of the great podcasts at
