Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Doug, Jess and Brandon of Linotype The Film are making another appeal:-

QuoteWe have been given seven 16mm educational films from the Mergenthaler Linotype Company from the 1950s and '60s. They are the original films that were sent out to educate people on how different aspects of the Linotype work.

I received an email from Doug Wilson informing me that due to generous donation they now have enough money to have the Mergenthaler Linotype Films clean and digitised.

QuoteWelcome to the 11th newsletter from Linotype: The Film. We hope this finds you well.

"No News is Good News"
We apologize for the long delay between updates, but this can mean only one thing - we are busy editing the film! The old adage "No news is good news" is very applicable as we edit the film to make it the very best possible.

Slowly but surely we are bringing footage, music and graphics together to make the film. Editing is a long and difficult process similar to putting together a 1,000 pice puzzle without knowing what the final picture looks like. It takes patience and dedication to tell the story correctly.

World Premiere
We are very excited to announce that the world premiere of the film will be February 3, 2012 in New York City. This will start a screening tour that will span across the United States and into other parts of the world. Additional screening dates and locations and will be announced soon.

All the best,

Doug, Jess and Brandon
