Brilliant, it's one of those questions I've felt a bit embarrassed to ask, "When you say hot metal, do you mean it actually cast the type from molten metal!?" probably seems obvious to some, but as a child of the Inkjet age it is a bizarre and alien concept... but now I know for sure!


Many thanks for sharing; great too that the scans are big enough to actually read. Linotype next please ;)

Yes, hot metal because it's molten metal or lead that's cast. You can see some truly hot hot metal type in this video:
