Ruleform Composition the Economical Ludlow Way
This is a marketing brochure (not a technical instruction manual) on using Ludlow Slug-Aligning Matrices to set ruled work such as forms.
The Ludlow "Brightype" system "converts any combination of letterpress printing material directly into photographic images for use by any printing process." It involves preparing a letterpress form with "a liquid lampblack coating" on all of the nonprinting area (leaving the type bright). "After this treatment, the form is essentially a negative."

Hot Metal Paste-Up
This was a system in some way developed jointly by Hammond Machinery Builders and the Ludlow Typograph Company. Very little is now known about it.
