the »typo manifesto.«

This concept is aimed at typographers, designers and people who are interested in the topic "typography". It deals with the problem that the fundamental typographic knowledge, the so-called "black art", is not passed on to future generations and thus slowly dies out.

The book "typographic manifesto" deals with this problem and presents five theses, which are discussed with interview partners from the industry. Cross-media, this work is brought closer to the target group in various ways in order to ignite the passion for lead typesetting and thus preserve the culture of the "black art".
