Linotype: The Film – A Special Opportunity

If you’re as interested in type and typography as we are (!), have a look at the below opportunity to contribute to the preservation of our shared typographic history…


Linotype: The Film – A Special OpportunityWe would like to share about a unique opportunity that has been presented to us. We have been given seven 16mm educational films from the Mergenthaler Linotype Company from the 1950s and ’60s. They are the original films that were sent out to educate people on how different aspects of the Linotype work.

As far as we know, these are the only remaining films in the world and we want to help preserve them for the next generation. Any money received over our goal will help fund sending these to a telecine where they will be digitized. We hope to put the films up on the internet so many more people can see how the Linotype works.
