Default The Linotype at 125 years

The Atlantic remembers the mighty Linotype typesetter, dubbed the “Eighth Wonder of the World by Thomas Edison.

The clanking of Linos was standard at newspapers and print shops until the 1950s and 1960s, when offset printing and photo- and digital typesetting made creating pages and printing them much cheaper and easier.

I spent my teen-age years proofing copy for a newspaper right next to the noise, heat, and smell of the Linotype machines. This article conveys some of that, and more (despite a few minor inaccuracies).
