Typotage Leipzig: Script and Epistemology

On May 13, 2017, the Typotage Leipzig, an annual meeting of biblio- and typophiles, design and printing practitioners, and researchers, took place for the 23rd time at the Museum of the Printing Arts, Leipzig. The event was opened by a talk by Jost Hochuli on Jan Tschichold’s estate, archived in the Stiftsbibliothek St. Gallen (CH) and partly exhibited in the Museum currently.

The conference furthermore included talks on the Contextualization of Typography (J. Spitzmüller), Music Notation (W. Wolff), an exhibition on Erasmus of Rotterdam (M. Henry), Bible Typography (M. Schlierbach), Handwriting in Schools (T.-D. Albert), the Cultural History of (German) Primers (L. Neuhafen) and experiments on New Forms of Digital Writing (T. Diezmann).
