Erik Spiekermann hat ein neues Buch im Gestalten-Verlag am Start. Es geht vor allem um physischen Schriftsatz in Blei und Buchstaben zum Anfassen. Oldschool. „Don't wait for pretty pictures.“ Must Have für alle Typo-Nerds.

Erik Spiekermann is one of the best-known typographers and graphic designers in the world. Not only does he represent German typeface and corporate design like no other, but his work and the companies he founded—MetaDesign, FontShop, and EdenSpiekermann—have also had an unparalleled influence on contemporary graphic design around the globe.

At his newly opened letterpress workshop P98A gallery, Gestalten.tv meets this master, who has been “suffering from typomania” all his life. We learn about the beauty that benefits from constraints, the heritage of letterpress printing, and his unusual entrepreneurship principles. This video also gives you a sneak peak into his upcoming Gestalten book “Hello, I am Erik,” the first-ever visual biography of Erik Spiekermann's work and life stories.
