On the lost art of paste-up

We did this with chapbooks and zines in the 80s, but by the early 90s we could do a visual layout in whatever program we were using and this art slowly faded from memory. Though I remember a few times cutting and pasting layouts by hand in order to better understand how to lay them out in the programs that weren’t designed to be actual publishing tools. Could be mind-boggling at times.
