PRINTING, THE MUSEUM OF. NORTH ANDOVER, MA
Apr 28, 2006

HAVING MET THE MEMBERS WHO CAME TO NHS TO MOVE OUR PRINTER, THEY INVITED US TO VISIT THEIR MUSEUM. TODAY, HENRY AND I WENT UP AND HAD A TWO HOUR TOUR OF THE FABULOUS COLLECTION OF PRINTING HISTORY. THE DIRECTOR, GARDNER WAS THRILLED WITH HIS MUSEUM, AND PASSED HIS JOY ONTO US. WONDERFUL DAY.
Gallery One contains a timeline history of the manufacturing of letters. The journey starts in the foundry era, which reaches back 500 years. A guide explains the transition from hand-setting individual sorts of foundry type to mechanized hot-metal typesetting and discusses the Linotype, Monotype and Ludlow linecasting machines. Along the tour route you’ll find a Monophoto and an Intertype Fotosetter, machines which attempted to use linecasting technology to transition to phototypesetting, only to fail in competition with the electronically-driven phototypesetters. Then you’ll come upon strike-on typesetters, machines designed to produce inexpensive type which could be married to the expanding offset printing market. You’ll move on to phototypesetters, where Massachusetts hi-tech companies played a dominant role. The last chapter of this type story is digital.
