  • Leading [Letterpress typesetting] | Definition and Translations

    Views: 2020

    Leading is the space between lines of letterpress type. It is called leading because the material to fill this space was originally made from lead. The term is often used for digital typesetting as well, but stands for the distance between consecutive baselines in this context. See “line spacing” for more information.
