Type setting

Type setting is the composition of type by means of arranging physical type. The digital equivalent is often referred to as glyphs. this usually involves letters and symbols, in some cases with some scripted typefaces there can even flourishes can be involved.(wikipedia,2017)

Type setting is best known by the wooden and metal block type that is arranged to mass produce sheets faster than possible by hand, however now this isn’t used so much for this reason anymore with printers and computers around, it is now used more commonly for a method of art.

Ever since starting to take an interest in lettering art and typography I have always been keen to try out type setting but have never been able to clear out enough time in the project to incorporate it, however in this project I intend to give it a try even if it only aids in my design in a minor way.
