Emphasis placed on an understanding of the history, theory and philosophy of independently published prints. Both traditional and nontraditional processes for creating printed images will be explored, including: lithography, relief, intaglio, silk screen, monoprints, book arts, and photo mechanical . The history of printing starts as early as BC, when the Persian and Mesopotamian civilizations used cylinder seals to certify documents written in clay. Other early forms include block seals, pottery imprints and cloth printing. Woodblock printing on paper originated in China around AD. It led to the development of movable type in the eleventh century and the spread of book production.

The workhorse for book-work machine typesetting was the Lanston Monotype. It cast individual sorts as needed and assembled them at an assigned width. Once the page was “worked off,” the type could be melted to be cast anew, or it could be distributed into cases for hand composition or correcting of typographic errors matter set in the same.

Translations in context of "typesetting machine" in English-French from Reverso Context: I sat at the typesetting machine for countless hours, a very nice time. Usually we hear it used for books in the early stages of printing.

In other words, absolutely hot type and not cold type. Also realize it was the early 80s when computers were. This method of typesetting was also referred to as ‘cold type’ technology as against the ‘hot-metal’ mechanical typesetting.

The process of photo-composition typically developed the matter to be printed (either as a negative or as a positive) by passing light through a lens and a transparent surface onto photosensitive material. The book also contains useful information on photo-mechanical processes, explaining how a photograph can appear very differently, and as a result be interpreted in a range of ways, in a variety of s:   Making typesetting easier seemed to be one of Barnett's passions.
