In 1978, phototypesetting was a new technique for photocomposition.

Gary Gore explains the advantages of this new technology in addition to the common pitfalls for the photocomposition process.

Included are samples of the type produced from this process with examples of proper kerning and a glossary to explain the terms used throughout the leaflet.

Images show readers the various parts of a phototypesetter for clarification.
