Re: Linotype

Reminded me I referenced ~decade-ago some great links for any nostalgia heads. Part of overhauling some wikipedia stuff that was later hijacked by typesetter-religioustypes. I found a couple of them:

Of limited general interest: Linotype keyboard operation; methods of study and procedures for setting various kinds of composition on the linotype.

Of interest for young'uns, tho probably boring for experts: A "Silesian Vocational and Technical" (1960) training video for Linotype machines, notable for its clarity regarding the technology's strengths and limitations etc
