17. Old School Typography.

I recently discovered a link to a bunch of typography-related movie clips. Follow *this link* and you'll see some great stuff, such as: 1. A silent movie showing Frederick Goudy as he designs Goudy Saks. 2. A video of Douglas Coffin, one of a handful of people in the United States who still carves letters in stone with the same methods that were used in the Roman Empire. 3. A clip about letterpress printing and John Kristensen‘s Firefly Press in Somerville, Massachusetts (my fav of the bunch.) 4. And finally a few movies about The Linotype, The Ludlow Typography machine, and The Monotype Keyboard & Caster. This is good stuff.
