"Linotype: The Film" Official Trailer from Linotype: The Film on Vimeo.

I'm so excited to share with you this incredible film that some of our dearest friends have spent the past few years creating! Linotype: The Film is a documentary centered around the Linotype type casting machine. Called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by Thomas Edison!

The first time I heard about this project, I have to admit… I was a little jealous. These guys have traveled all over the US interviewing people about this amazing machine. So magical! It's such a beautiful story and so I wanted to share it with you! 

Here's a link to scheduled screenings. I'm so excited to see the entire film, myself! XO. elsie 

  • Exciting! I got to use one of these while doing my BFA. They are all kinds of amazing. It was hard to go back to regular typesetting afterwards 🙂

  • Oh, wow! That’s SUCH an amazing machine.
    And it’s so incredible how dedicated and passionate all those guys are.
    That’s so sweet! I’ll have to check out the whole film!

  • Oh my gosh, what a complex and extraordinary machine. I have a friend who’s well versed in this area and, if he hasn’t already been made aware of this film, I’ll be sure to fill him in. It looks to be, in equal parts, heartbreaking and innovation affirming. So neat.

  • Can’t wait to see this. My friends find it very sad that I count typography as one of my hobbies but who gives a damn, ha!

  • That looks really interesting. It’s really crazy to think about what life was like before the computer. I remember using a typewriter as a kid, my sisters had our own little “newspaper” business. But even before the typewriter, I don’t know much about, so that would surely be fascinating to watch! Too bad they aren’t coming to Nashville.

  • Our dear friend, Tim Trower, took part in this film. He is a printer here in Spfld. I am proud to go see this. Thank you for promoting it!

  • This is awesome! I want to see it. Please tell your friends to screen it in Melbourne! (Submit it to the Melbourne International Film Festival – if they haven’t already!) xx, SB

  • SO watching this! LOVE IT. When I was in NOLA in 2009 we were tearing down an old printing press behind one of the houses that we were gutting, and I found two of these huge machines in this tiny house. I made sure they were not going to be thrown away – instead they were sold on Craigslist! What awesome contraptions!

  • T*H*A*N*K Y*O*U for sharing & to your friends for taking the time to make it!

    AWESOME!

  • I’m such a journalism nerd and love learning about how newspapers were laid out before computers. Thanks for posting this! I wish I could get to screening.

  • Looks amazing! You’re so lucky that you’re friends of the creators so you’ll get to see the whole film for sure! Could you politely ask them to bring it to Calgary, AB?! lol.

  • I got to see a screening of Linotype last friday in New York and the movie was so good! Just how these machines work is so fascinating. My boyfriend is a type designer, so his entire office went to see it. Gotta love type nerds. I hope you get to see it too sometime soon! The director noted at the screening I was at that the DVD of Linotype is set to come out in early summer.
