Linotype: The Film is a feature-length documentary centered around the Linotype type casting machine. Called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison, it revolutionized printing and society.The film tells the surprisingly emotional story of the people connected to the Linotype and how it impacted the world.
The movie’s world premiere is February 3rd at the SVA Theatre in New York City with Steven Heller moderating the Q&A afterwards. Tickets are on sale now over on their screenings page.
Got my tickets–my wife and I can not wait. I have not seen Steven Heller since I did some NYTimes book review spots for him many years ago. Tina will you be there opening night?
