 “‘Type,’ said the Foreman, ‘was made to read, / And that should serve as the printer’s creed, / For work on the Linotype machine / Or hand-set jobs should be clear and clean, / Not ornamental, obscure, bizarre, / Composed of all of the fonts there are, / But simple, legible, quiet, plain, / A joy alike to the eye and brain!’”

Type Was Made to Read” from The Legibility of Type. For more on the Linotype, click here
