The many shapes of cheese

HillJ | Apr 16, 201306:57 PM

Is there a particular rule and/or reason for how cheese is shaped? As I am buying and learning about cheese I see squares, bells, tomme shape, wheels, rounds, logs and all sorts of different wraps.

I'm sure this is a loaded question, but I would like to further understand how the actual shape of a particular cheese is decided. TIA.
