Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

I'm disappointed in the printer's hat. The only printer's hats I've seen, in the printing industry before, are the same as the download available on this site.

Interesting stuff George, not so much the 2003 pics though!

The hand-setting pic was interesting, an incredible amount of type-cases. I'm presuming it was taken in pre-Linotype days.
