Director Doug Wilson travelled the world for two years collecting material on the Linotype typesetting machine. The result is a 76-minute documentary on a device that Thomas Edison called “The Eighth Wonder of the World” and which revolutionised both the printing industry and society as a whole. The film not only looks at the history of the typesetting machine, but also tells the poignant and heartwarming stories of the people who worked with it.
A must-see nostalgic look back at the era when lead type was still used.
