Linotype matrices

Checking out Linotype matrices at Delbo (Maldegem). Even after only one generation, it is difficult to reconstruct this technology, deformed by aging former operators profiling themselves as specialists.

Delbo today is a thriving supplier of high tech graphic industry materials. And they still sell foundry type (Stempel AG).
