Title

Front Page Make-Up in Hot Metal

Subject

The hot metal type is combined together in make-up. Text and images are carefully aligned on the page and reviewed before printing.

Description

Each newspaper page was made-up and locked into a metal frame. The separate galleys of lead typeface and imagery permitted printers to proofread a test print, identifying any errors and easily substituting slugs from the blocks of text.
