  • A word is speech made visable.
  • Paper sizes use to be named after animals and have only changed to the standardised A sizes in the past 50 years. 
  • A big expense of printing is the running time of machines, so if you can fit more on (8xA4) it would be more effective and possibly cheaper.
  • The Gutenburg Bible was produced in typeface Blackface - a handwritten typeface - a non-handwritten typeface wasn't used until 50 years later and was adapted from the Romans.
  • 72pt is equivalent to 1inch.
