    Friederike von Hellermann is a book artist who works from Halle (Saale), Germany. On 3 February 2020 she gave a lecture about book art and the haptic experience in times of e-books at Basics 19/20 (UdK Berlin).

    The posters were letterpress-printed using Prestige and a selection of more familiar typefaces from the twentieth century: Akzidenz-Grotesk, Helvetica, Amsterdamer Garamont and geometric shapes taken from the well-known Futura Schmuck.

    1. Very nice to have a documented use for Prestige, one of the lesser known typeface designs by Helmut Matheis! Thank you for that.

      Was this printed at UdK’s print shop, or maybe at p98a? I saw that they have Futura Schmuck in their drawers.

    2. This one was printed at UdK’s Medienhaus print shop. Thank you for sharing these interesting articles. I will read through!

    3. I see, thanks! Say servus to Thomas.
