Doctor of Words. Linotype machinist-in-training. Apprentice typecaster. I seem to like every machine with "graph" or "type" in its name: Linotypes, Intertypes, Typographs, Graphotypes, Telegraphs, Teletypes, Teletypesetters, (Printing) Type, Typewriters, Addressographs, Multigraphs, Varigraphs, Pantographs, Mimeographs, Diagraphs, and the Elrod. Words as physical things. I love stationary steam engines, the smells of coal and machine oil, and ragtime music. I feel most at home in a library or a machine shop, which is perhaps why our home resembles both.
