ABOUT







Museum für Druckkunst

Printing museum in Leipzig's suburb of Plagwitz (Nonnenstrasse 38), an outgrowth of the old Haas-Drugulin printing house [Drugulin was started in 1829 by Friedrich Nies, became renowned for Asian and African languages, and was merged with Haas in 1928, only to be damaged during WWII, and emerge outdated from the East German era in 1990]. "There are wood and lead printing characters, matrices, steel stamps, in all some thirty tons from the stocks of the best known (no longer existing) typefoundries or printing establishments. Among them are hieroglyphs, cuneiform types, Sanskrit types from the Reichsdruckerei, the Imperial Printers in Berlin and the set of matrices of a gothic script by Jakob Sabon, cut before 1575." In 1992, the Museum was bought by Eckehart SchumacherGebler, a printer from München. Page at MyFonts.
