First edition. Co-published with Pear Tree Publishing. This is the story of an iconic device for hot metal typesetting. Born at the beginning of the 20th century, its active production lifespan lasted just over 80 years, and is still in use by letterpress printers around the world.
Author Frank Romano has dug deep to discover more than has ever been published about the people, the company, and the machine that established typographic tastes.
