Interesting typography

by

I am reading an interesting book by Victoria Squire called Getting it right with type. It revealed an entertaining fact about the type. The terms uppercase and lowercase come from the time of manual typesetting. Traditional metal type was stored in two wooden cases – capital letters in the top one and small letters in the bottom. As simple as that. But so amazing.
