The Lorem Ipsum text used today can be tracked down to the printing press industry in the 16th century. An unknown printer used a scrambled version of Cicero’s philosophical book «De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum», written in 45 BC, to create filler text. The text became popular among printers and typesetters because it provided a standard dummy text that could be used to showcase different fonts, layouts, and designs without the distraction of meaningful content.
