Monotype Composition Caster and Keyboard – part 2
[If you missed Part 1 please follow this link.]
Came across these photos in a book called Printing To-day by John C Tarr (OUP, 1945). The book is part of a magnificently titled ‘The Pageant of Progress’ series put out by OUP – remember this was the end of the war and all seemed possible.Other books in the series include – Iron and Steel To-day; Warships To-day; Military Science To-day; and the one I most would like to get hold of The Police and Crime Detection To-day.
Anyhow, John Carr discusses where printing has come to at the end of the war, and illustrates the text with numerous goodies (some others I will share in the future). But these images most beautifully show the Monotype.
