Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

Whilst trying to find a logo for the Ludlow Typograph I came across this interesting brochure for the Ludlow Swiftape, described as a


punched tape system for Teletypesetter-compatible control of Linotype or Intertype linecasting machines.

I would imagine it was an ill-fated attempt to get the Ludlow Typograph Compamy into the "computer age" though I may be wrong. Anyone seen or used one?

Incidentally, does anyone know if the Ludlow had a logo as such. The nearest I've seen is the word Ludlow, set in Umbra.
