Typeophile's may well have some excitement
for this film which is currently in production
about Ottmar Mergenthaler's great invention,
the Linotype Printer.
It's hard to imagine how time consuming type
setting would be with out him.
The film is being backed by donations and even
though they've met their target there's still over
a week to contribute if you like.
Gestalten have another great video up which
this time is an interview with Marilyn and John Neuhart.
In case you're unfamiliar with thier work she, along
with husband John were designers at the Eames
office in the 50's which also put them in the perfect
position to write this book.

I've never understood why people would
practice fingerboarding to this degree or
what market Hermès are possibly aiming
at here but for some reason the combination
and the lighting of this video do work nicely.
Possibly a rival to this preposterous
item L.V. made.

For anyone who has seen any of the three volumes

Sergei Vasiliev with the drawings and definitions
by Danzig Baldaev.
The show is located at 4 Wilkes Street and runs
until 28th November.
