At the beginning there was the typograph. Ottmar Mergenthaler´s invention made the automatically typesetting of “Gutenberg´s plumb letters” possible for the first time in history. This provided an enormous time- and cost-saving factor! Shortly after its first introduction in 1886, the typewriter was engaged into every large publishing house around the entire world.
The film trailer represents a reminder of the famous Linotype typograph, which still assembled analogical letters. The production finished in 1976.
