Linotype: The Film

I just discovered a fascinating project, a feature-length documentary film centered around the Linotype typecasting machine invented by Ottmar Mergenthaler in 1886. View a trailer and read more about it here Linotype: The Film.

To me, this reflects the sentiment of one of my favourite quotes, from Daniel Boorstin, who warned that planning for the future without a sense of history is like planting cut flowers.
