Tallone’s typographic studio has been continuously in operation since the 18th  century, and its vast endowment of original foundry types and presses is still in use. Neither monotype nor linotype are used. These typesetting systems from a keyboard are often passed off as manual typography. The Tallone Press also does not print from plastic plates derived from digital compositions.
