One of my favorite classes in college was typesetting. Challenging but satisfying. I have been in awe of typesetters ever since.The other day I happened on this beautiful short film, not the manual typesetting that I learned, but still, The Birth of a Book is a thing of beauty. Enjoy!
Another fun piece, this one from The Millions on the Interrobang, a combination exclamation point and question mark (bang for those of us who worked as copyeditors in the day).
You Call that a Punctuation Mark?! The Interrobang Celebrates its 50th Birthday
Emma is screaming toward deadline, at which time I’ll be the busy one and she can post more (as I work on the 11th Owen Archer).
