New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have in mind a specific item of equipment used in typesetting. I would like the name of this item, the name of its inventor and by what name it was also known as.
Hint: One pin hole told the caster to slide the matrice case so many rows in one direction. The other pin hole so many rows in another direction. Beneath would be the selected character. Characters were cast individually and resulted in type identical to that set by a hand compositor.
