Typography and applications

Before getting in to knowing the evolution of typography, first, let us understand what it means.

What Constitutes Typography?

The term typography is derived from Greek words typos and graphia which mean impression and writing respectively. Thus, typography is nothing but the way text gets written or in modern day terms, it refers to the font in which a particular document is written. Fonts and documents are more modern terms which have their origins with computers but prior to this, there were many printing presses that were operational since a long time that has published books before even computers were invented. Thus typography has a long history and lets us look at how it has evolved into every household today. Typography is not about one-time writing but its main use is to use them for repetitive efforts thus reducing time, energy and money and bringing uniformity and readability no matter how many times the item is reproduced or replicated.
