the art of typography

my grandfather used to be a typographer in the local newspaper before he retired. before everything became digital, being a typographer was a specialized occupation. recently, the association of retired typographers opened up an exhibition at the local museum showing the art and technique of arranging letters in order to print a newspaper. it is pretty impressive!
