The advancements in recent linguistics have made things clear that the more one learns about language, the less its structures have come to look like portraits of the speaker or pictures of reality, despite the fact that the structure and operation of language are far from fully being understood. Information can be produced by structure imposed as well as by structure revealed or eloquence conveyed. Grids have come truly by themselves, when the eloquence of reality began to decline and a collective curiosity entered the ancient and medieval world. Writing space itself has always required some coordinate system. Printing provided a rigid and general framework for information. Typesetting was a labor that warranted much greater care and precision.
