During his time with H. Berthold AG Günter Gerhard Lange gave lectures and presentations not only internally, but also publicly at trade fairs, professional events and conferences. He travelled across countries and continents as a prophet and missionary, promoting photo typesetting, typefaces and typography, giving up to forty lectures a year. Even after retirement his talks were very popular at conferences. GGL was a passionate orator who animated, criticised and praised with his often drastic rhetoric, and the nickname as “Gutenberg’s machine gun”, coined by the typographer Manfred Klein, did not come by chance. But with all critical clarity GGL radiated an energy that inspired his listeners. Excerpts from GGL’s unique rhetoric can be found below.
