typography the old fashioned way

Posted on Apr 11, 2012 | No Comments


From the San Francisco Chronicle is this amazing video, Typecaster for life, about Lewis Mitchell of Arion Press where they still print books the old fashioned way. Using Monotype casting machines that he has been maintaining for 62 years he has lost count of the number of books he has printed.

Great quote from Mitchell “My dad taught me from square one if you going to do something, you’re going to do it right or you don’t do it.”
