Architecture+Design Film Festival: Linotype: The Film

Fri, May 5 / 7 pm
Directed by Douglas Wilson
2012, USA, 75 min

Called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison, the Linotype type casting machine revolutionized printing and society. This film tells the charming and emotional story of the people connected to the Linotype and how it impacted the world.

Reviews

I don’t know what attracted writer-director Doug Wilson to the topic, but he’s done a first-rate job of introducing it to a contemporary audience..He has tracked down various keepers of the flame, including a longtime New York Times typesetter, a printing museum historian, the country’s one and only traveling repairman, a couple of young enthusiasts who continue to work on the “outmoded” machines, and a determined fellow who operates a school for anyone who wants to learn how to use a Linotype.
