Gestalten is hosting a comprehensive two-day workshop with Erik Spiekermann on July 25-26.

Erik Spiekermann is the epitome of a typographer. With his typefaces, commercial projects, and enterprises, he has shaped the world of graphic design like no other.

The workshop will explore the fundamentals of letterpress through theory, the mechanics of the printers used, and experimentation.

Participants will be introduced to basic typesetting, including the setting of small type, as well as justifying, binding columns, distributing type, and press set up.

After being led through basic printing with mock-ups, cylinder packing, and the inking process, it'll be time for hands-on printing with one of the world's most influential designers.
