A Modern Monotype Marvel of a Matrix Case

 

In a brilliant example of marrying new technologies with old, Peter Randall, son of Monotype operator John, has put a laser to use in creating a modern day matrix case.

 

Loose and leftover matrices, of which the Museum has rather too many, are very hard to find when you want one. Generally, they get lumped together in a box of leftovers.  The Museum has thousands of matrices to catalogue. So in order to find what we've got and what might be missing, Peter has come up with this brilliant solution which allows a searcher or cataloguer to immediately identify the mats.
