The Ludlow Typograph was in production from 1909 to 1971. The machine is used to cast slugs of type. Its matrices, which are kept in drawers in type cases and hand assembled in a “stick,” have the largest range of point sizes (4 to 240 points). The machine allows for very flexible hand setting in roman and italic — and was often used to cast headlines and captions.
