Typekit is proud to host the West coast premiere of Linotype: The Film, a feature-length documentary centered around the Linotype type casting machine. Called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison, the Linotype revolutionized printing and society. The film tells the surprisingly emotional story of the people connected to the Linotype and how it impacted the world.

Director Doug Wilson will be on hand to answer questions after the screening. Arrive early for drinks sponsored by Typekit. Tickets are on sale now, but space is limited, so act fast! The first screening has sold out, but tickets for a second screening are on sale now.
