I am the type
Of my earliest ancestry neither history nor relics remain.
With the olden vision of Gutenberg, the profound art of printing with movable type was born.
Cold, rigid and implaceable I may be, yet the first impress of my face brought the Divine Word to countless thousands.
I bring into the light of day the prcious stores of knowledge and wisdom long hidden in the grave of ignorance.
I am the leaden army that conquers the world. I am the type!
