Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

Thanks to Robin Kenworthy for drawing my attention to this video, made by Mark Barbour from the International Print Museum, Carson, California, USA.

It explains how to operate a 19th Century iron hand press, a question asked recently on this Forum. There is a nice quote about printers from Charles Dickens towards the end.
