Linotype: The Film

Ottmar Mergenthaler’s invention of the type casting machine he called the linotype, was called the “8th Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison. It revolutionized printing in its time, but is hardly even spoken of today. The documentary “Linotype: The Film”, is hoping to change that. Featuring over 45 interviews from people who have fought to preserve the machines & the art that is Linotype.

The film is scheduled to premier in early 2012 with a DVD release date in spring of 2012.

You can view both the trailer & an interview clip below.
