Originally, typesetting was a specialized skill. A typesetter took written material and set it in type (wooden, metal, and later, machine-generated) according to the specifications of the designer or printer. It is the job of the typesetter to make sure all the correct typefaces and specific fonts are used throughout the document with all the text properly arranged.
Also Known As: textsetter
Alternate Spellings: type setting
Examples: "Typography in graphic design involves the selection of appropriate typefaces and their arrangement on the page."
