Many thanks to Dr. Leland Whitson, Trustee and Docent Director of the International Printing Museum in Carson, California, USA for sending in this video of the museum's newly-acquired Miehle V50 being put to use, printing a Linotype-set book.
In Leland's own words: My team and I are completing the letterpress printing of my Uncle's book, "The Surgeon Factory," a 267 page semi-autobiographical, fictionalized story of his years as a surgical resident at Los Angeles County Hospital.
My one year project is now into its fifth year but will be done within weeks.
I have learned a lot; it has been a labor of love, for sure.
This is posthumous gift to honor my beloved Uncle who was to me a mentor in medicine and in life.
Does anyone know of a book of this size Linotype set and printed letterpress within the past few years?
