Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


The Curle Slug Corrector is an attachment for Linotype or Intertype that I had never heard of before I ran across the instruction manual. If it does the job as claimed I would loved to have recommended it to Mono Linotype Typesetters in Toronto. Mono Linotype as the name suggests used both Monotypes and Linotypes to set type. They insisted that the slugs from the Linotypes exactly matched the type from the Monotypes. I spent some frustrating hours in their shop.
