I chose to explore and compare two leading typesetting machines from the 1880’s; the Monotype and the Linotype. Housed in a slipcase with screen printed illustrations of both the machines are five booklets.
 
The booklets explore the differences, similarities, advantages and disadvantages of each machine and uses different techniques to create similar effects to that of the machines.
 
All booklets are either screen printed, letterpressed, laser cut or a combination.
