Description

The method of producing printing types remained remarkably unchanged from Gutenberg’s time until the latter part of the nineteenth century. The only significant revisions to the process would come in the late nineteenth century, with the invention of the pantographic punchcutting machine, eliminating the need for handcut punches; and mechanical type composition from keyboarded copy. The first practical method to gain a foothold in industry was the Linotype machine invented by Ottmar Merganthaler in the 1880s.
