“Never love anyone who treats you like you’re ordinary.”

Printing the Oxford English Dictionary, in 1925.
Stereotyping was invented in the 18th century to avoid the repeated setting of pages in type for reprints of a text. This process lay behind much mass printing in the 19th and 20th centuries, including The Oxford English Dictionary as shown in this clip.
These clips are from a silent film made in 1925 by the Federation of British Industry, illustrating industrial life and including the work of Oxford University Press.

OUP’s Archive Department collects, catalogues, and preserves all material of long-term importance associated with the Press’s commercial and social activities in Britain, from the 17th century to the present day.
