About ‹Die Lettertypen›

Die Lettertypen sind eine traditionelle Buchdruckerei die anspruchsvoll hochwertige Akzidenzdrucksachen nach Gutenbergmanier setzt und druckt, heutzutage mehr unter Letterpress bekannt. Gedruckt werden nicht nur die Klassiker wie Visitenkarten und Briefpapier, auch Bücher und Plakate im Format von >A0. Dies machen die Maschinen möglich, die teilweise über 160 Jahre alt sind, und jede dieser Maschinen erzählt ihre eigene Geschichte. Die Lettertypen sind kein Museum, alle Maschinen drucken und zeigen wie schön diese Handwerk ist.
Wichtiges Material ist nicht nur Papier, – das kann auch schon mal aus Italien oder Japan kommen – das fertige Druckgut ist immer die Summe aus Papier, Farbe, Typografie, handwerklichem Können und nicht zu letzt die Sorgfalt der Ausführung die dem Druckgut ein Erlebnis von fast allen Facetten der Haptik geben.

About ‹edition carpe plumbum›

Carpe Plumbum is a workshop for letterpress and relief printing, located in the “Spinnerei” in Leipzig – a former Cotton factory
that now hosts artists, designers and galleries.

In the workshop hundreds of typecases and several presses (from 3 FAG proof presses to the 70x100cm “Präsident” Cylinder press) offer varied possibilities for printwork.

I work together with artists and designers, printing cards and small editions, as well as larger editions such as posters and books; for example all the original graphic LUBOK books are printed here. See www.lubok.de for more.
