Short Documentary about the last day of Linotype at the NY Times. I knew generally what a Linotype was, but I had no idea that for every single line of text in the NY times, they cast a custom lead die for the print layout. The entire machine was a mechanical lead casting system that had hardly changed in 100 years. This is from the last day of Linotype operations, before they were replaced by electrostatic printing from computers/word processing.
