type cabinets

stores type cases when not in use

needs front access

each drawer of a cabinet is called a "case"

a drawer is like one fontsize of one font. contains all the letters, etc.

Galley Cabinet

a galley is a metal tray that holds type forms

when you've set a block of text and it's ready to be printed, that's called a "form"

this cabinet holds standing type while it's "tied up in a form", i.e. in active use

needs front access, ideally back access as well

42" x 23.5"

furniture

it's for bigger spacing, margins around a textbox, etc

they haven't sorted their furniture, might need a new cabinet just to store furniture

composing stick

little jig with a movable pressure locking mechanism/thing called a knee. the knee locks the length of your line. it's just a tool that helps you compose a longer text.

for example, if you're setting a whole book you can only set a few lines at once. then you have to put them on the galley and set more.
