A typecaster for life

From the San Francisco Chronicle comes this delightful video, Typecaster for life, about Lewis Mitchell of Arion Press where they print books using Monotype casting machines. Mitchell, 82, he has been maintaining these machines for 62 years.

He says the first machine, which started the company during 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition, is still its best machine.

It's a wonderfully told story. Never mind the imagery—I just want to close my eyes and hear the sounds.
