Phototypesetting systems were capable of setting the photographic equivalent of body type, ideally with due regard for the issues which characterize type: lining and fitting . Photolettering systems were simpler, and just lined up photographic lettering for headlines and similar short composition where everything could be tweaked by hand. "Photocomposition" includes both (plus allied mehods of paste-up). It was just as common, though, to used "phototypesetting" to mean both.

Note: Several phototypesetting systems were (or could be) driven by Teletypesetter-compatible 6-level tape. For more on the TTS (which by its nature was a composite technology the material for which is scattered throughout this site), see the CircuitousRoot cross-reference of TTS Literature Locations .

The miscellaneous collection of material here is incomplete primarily because photocomposition is not my main interest (my focus instead is on metal type, and especially the "hot metal" era of composition ). Someone really should try to preserve photocomposition technology, although it is probably too late already. It is likely to become one of the least known eras of the history of type.

Phototypesetting
Louis Marius Moyroud and Rene Alphonse Higonnet developed the first practical phototypesetting machine.

Phototypesetting
Using phototypesetting, a direct image of the text is obtained, positive or negative, according to need, on a photosensitive, usually transparent surface by exposing the surface to light through transparent matrices, negative or positive, of the letters and symbols. Related Information
