(Preface) 'Typography - the art, or skill, of designing printed matter, especially printed words - has a history stretching back five hundred years. Ever since its invention in the fifteenth century printing has been based on the use of movable types, and this technology has conditioned the design of everything from pamphlets to newspapers, books and magazines.

But now: quite suddenly, in the last quarter of the twentieth century, a revolution has taken place. Printers throughout the world are jettisoning the old metal technology in favour of advanced filmsetting systems, which introduce new problems and open up exciting possibilities for typographers. This book is the first to tackle the full implications for designers of the 'filmsetting revolution'. Written with an infectious zest and enthusiasm, it is sure to become the budding typographer's vade-mecum.'
