With the two are Sylvia Schlettwein in the back row right, and Renate van Wyk, Olga Kausch, Erna Müller and Alison Gardiner in front.

About The Author


Today the Typesetter is a position at a newspaper that is mostly outdated since lead typesetting disappeared about fifty years ago. It is however a convenient term to indicate a person that is responsible for the technical refinement of publishing including web publishing. The Typesetter does not contribute to editorial content but makes sure that all elements are where they belong. - Ed.
