Recommendation: FontFont Visits Erik Spiekermann’s Home
About two years ago, the English magazine dwell was a guest of typography luminary Erik Spiekermann and his wife Susanna Dulkinys. Now FontFont offers an interesting insight into the lives of the two Berlin-based creatives. In the latest article in the “At Home With” series, the focus is not only on printing presses and typefaces but also on the story of how Spiekermann became the “God Father of Typography”.
Designer, author, typographer, and sometimes musician, these are just a few of Erik Spiekermann’s many job titles. He is also responsible for many of today’s typographic icons, such as the FF Meta, FF Unit, and FF Info.
Starting in the small private print shop, the interview takes us through the kitchen, the study, and the two-story library, all the way up to the eighth floor of the environmentally conscious, modern Berlin residence. The entire interview, as well as Max Zerrahn’s appealing photographs, can be found on the FontFont website.
