    Another device that has been used in Japanese typography is "shatai". It
    originated with film typesetting systems and used a lens to distort the
    glyph image projected on film, to achieve an oblique (shatai), flattened
    (hiratai) or narrowed (choutai) style. InDesign J supports a simulation
    of those effects.
