After three years it’s finally done:
The »Fliegenprobe« – probably one of the last letterpress specimens – was released in
a limited edition, consisting of two volumes and an accompanying box with large format prints.
The project was started under the appeal »bitte setzen!« in summer 2008 by Munich Designschool (www.designschule-muenchen.de) in collaboration with the letterpress printshop »Fliegenkopf« (www.fliegenkopf-muenchen.de). The ambitious goal was to create a specimen of the approximately 170 different typefaces of the workshop.
