A booklet by illustrator and type designer Warren Chappell, published by "Friends of Paul Bennett" (dated 1953-12-03), sketching the process of traditional type punchcutting using a counterpunch. The treatment is correct and well illustrated, but exceedingly brief. A portion of the print run was distributed, at Bennett's request, as Monograph 40 of The Typophiles.

This was a machine intended for use in retail stores to allow them to create product signs ("show cards") without employing a professional show card writer. It dates from some point after 1948 (when Morgan acquired the Line-O-Scribe product) but probably before 1963 (because it does not use ZIP codes). As reprinted here it also includes two later supplemental items: an order blank and a...
