In October 1996 the second FontShop conference TypoBerlin takes place under the motto Idea vs. Ideology. Here, Günter Gerhard Lange gives his legendary lecture “The Staging of a Message on the Surface”. He embarks on a historic journey from the Roman Capitalis to David Carson and Neville Brody. He does this in his usual outspoken language which was cause for his nickname “Gutenberg’s Machine gun.”
A recording of this lecture was published in 1998 on the occasion of the 3rd TypoBerlin.
