What do you do if you want/need to print someone's portrait, but offset hasn't been invented yet? Well, you 'simply' create ASCII art using a Monotype machine!

This is another one of those skills that is going to dissapear, along with the machinery. We've once visited Stichting Lettergieten 1983 that strives to keep machines like these running -- it's the only place that you still can get new lead type in the Netherlands...
