Dedicated to Günter Gerhard Lange, the internationally renowned Typographer and former Artistic Director of H. Berthold AG, on the occasion of his 100th birthday on 12th April, 2021.
“100 years GGL”: With this motto I want to remember my mentor, friend and promoter of type quality and young talents in this anniversary year. With insights into his life and work, his work for H. Berthold AG, his fonts, lectures and publications. I invite you to join me on a journey into GGL’s world of type, his “brittle mistress”, as he himself called it, a world which he sustainably shaped and in so many ways helped to create.
Kirsten Solveig Schneider, colleague and artistic executor of Günter Gerhard Lange
