Metal Type website update

Hi everyone, here’s an update on what’s been happening on the Metal Type website recently.

The upgrade is more or less complete (yes I know that’s a dangerous thing to say!) and the renewed interest has prompted some new submissions to the site.

So here’s what has been added in the last week or so:

Austrian Type Height -
George Hamilton, from Vienna sent in this story.

Christophe Plantin Print Shop -
Mike Topper sent in these pics from a recent visit

Linotype Model One Video -
Ruben Brizuela sent in video of his Linotype Model 1 running (albeit with the plunger pin removed). It begs the question is this the last Model 1 working? Let me know in the comments.

A favour to ask:
I’m currently moving the site’s mailing list over to MailChimp. It will eventually lead to me being able to send out improved emails. Unfortunately moving the existing database over is proving difficult.
To that end, if you wish to receive future emails from Metal Type please subscribe to the new list here -

All the Best
