The Noel D'Cunha Sunday Column: The Tale of Typesetting

Published By: Printweek on eSocialSciences | Published Date: February, 14 , 2021

The first time, printing interns at PrintWeek saw an old newspaper, they were stupefied. It was so difficult to imagine typesetting, one by one, by hand, every tiny letter of metal in complex lockups so tight. It required mechanical engineering. Also skillful dexterity. You had to pick each alphabet without ruining the structure. Or else you had to start all over again the next morning. The Sunday Column looks at the world of types - and why it remains important. First appeared in PrintWeek, February 14, 2021.
