Since as far back as the 1450s, typefaces have been used in printing ( Do you remember Gutemberg? His major work, the Gutenberg Bible, also known as the 42-line Bible, has been acclaimed for its high aesthetic and technical quality.). Lead alloys were often cast into letters (or wood was substituted with its own separate wood type typefaces) and laid out for printing purposes.
Much later in the 1950s-1970s, it became possible to produce printed type with phototypesetting using high resolution images of each character of a typeface. Early digital typesetters also started to appear in the 1970s.
