History of Phototypesetting and the Second Revolution in Type

Ralf Herrmann

The emergence of photographic typesetting in the 1960s expanded typographic creativity and production. The classic font libraries of Monotype, Linotype, Ludlow and others were transferred to film—badly in most cases. The advent of the digital imagesetter and PostScript saw an explosion of new and derivative typefaces. Romano’s talk covers the technologies, libraries, and luminaries of the phototypesetting era.
