First edition. Co-published with Pear Tree Publishing. This is the story of an iconic device for hot metal typesetting.

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.

From the Museum of Printing: Frank Romanos latest book is now available! It is called History of the Ludlow Typograph and covers the remarkable tale of a device that is still in use by letterpress printers around the world today. Romano writes about the people, the company, the machine, and the type library that established typographic tastes.

Born at the beginning of the 20th century, the active production lifespan of the Ludlow Typograph lasted just over 80 years, but its impact has continued. In the last decade of the 20th century as typography evolved from metal to film to digital, many of the fonts in use were based on hot metal libraries. One of the major trendsetters for typographers was the Ludlow Typograph.

At 535 pages and with over 400 illustrations, this book digs deeper into the history of the Ludlow Typograph than any previous book.
