What most people don't realize is not so far 'back in the day' typesetting was truly a craft and it involved setting lead type letter-by-letter, blank-space-by-blank-space. This is how I (gratefully) started to print. I learned the craft of typesetting.
Let's take it a step further now. I've (luckily due to my proximity to M & H Type Foundry) always had access to lead type and have always enjoyed the meditative process of hand-setting my designs. But who creates the fonts for lead type? If I thought hand-setting type was a painstaking process, creating the punches to make the type is a thousand times that.
For the curious and the true type-lovers, here is a trailer for a movie which displays just that.
Enjoy and Thank you, Mr. Rimmer.
