A Ludlow Typograph is a hot-metal typesetting system used in letterpress printing. The device casts bars or slugs of type out of type metal primarily consisting of lead. These slugs are used for the actual printing, and then are melted down and recycled on the spot. The principal typographer at Ludlow was R. Hunter Middleton, creator of several notable font designs, including Coronet, Stencil, Delphian Open Title, Eusebius, Flair, Radiant, Record Gothic, Stellar, Tempo, Umbra and many others. Other noted designers for Ludlow included Robert Wiebking, Douglas Crawford McMurtrie who served as director of advertising and typography before Middleton, and Hermann Zapf, whose Optima and Palatino were among the last faces cut for Ludlow.
