Linotype: the film

Sometimes you just need a little film about "obsolete" printing technology to get your day off to a great start.

"Linotype: The Film" Official Trailer from Linotype: The Film on Vimeo.

One more example of how I was born several decades too late. I did typesetting on another now-obsolete machine, but it wasn't nearly as fun as a Linotype.

So far the screening schedule for this film seems confined to the coasts. Seriously? That can't be right.


  1. WOW! It broke my heart to see those linotype rusting in the rain! Save the linotypes of North America! Thanks Sherrie for posting this.

  2. Oh, so sad to see all that beauty reduced to junk!

  3. Nice to see a few people keeping them in action though, eh? Ooooh... wouldn't it be fun to have your own?
