Spotted on Instagram, I guess this is a similar idea to Monotype's Lord's Prayer, 10pt.

Shame we don't see the business side of the mat though. The bit that faces the operator has the word Linotype on it, the brochure suggests it produces a whole alphabet!

Anyone got one?

Dave Seat has a matrix that he will cast on your machine if he visits. I have a few casts from it and they print well. all 26 characters on a 6 point body. Also a good test of your machine.
