I’m summer interning for a magazine. While putting together a briefing book, I saw a sample page with the following mystical inscription instead of text:
My boss told me it’s called “Greek text”, and is used to fill out a space where text will go but for which no copy is available. I knew this, of course. But I’ve seen this exact copy or a slight variant thereof several times before. What I want to know is, who wrote it, why, what were they on, and what if anything does it mean? And why is it called Greek when it looks Latin?
