9780712348126: Printer's Type in the Twentieth Century: Manufacturing and Design Methods

First edition. The last years of the nineteenth century saw the final stages in the transition of type manufacture from a craft to an industrial process, and the first appearance of complex mechanical systems for the composition of text. A hundred years later, text composition used only the simple mechanisms inside laser printers and image-setters, and type manufacture was well on the way to becoming a craft process once again; though now with computer displays and software replacing steel punches and copper matrices.
