A cinematic retrospective of
Linotype’s machine history

If you want to learn about the early production techniques of typographic printed materials on paper and film, the movie “The Eighth Wonder” is right for you.
The film came out in 1961 and deals with the Linotype machine, which revolutionized printing at the time, its application and technical developments like Linofilm.
The movie was filmed on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Linotype. It runs just under 25 minutes in length. This year, director and producer Doug Wilson digitalized the film. Wilson also created the documentary “Linotype – The Film” in 2012.

You can find the original film from 1961 on Typografie.info.
