Collector's First Edition


Masterpiece of the printer's art 

  • Numbered First Edition.
  • It’s not just a book, it’s a stunning work of art — printed in Germany with the highest quality materials, by craftsmen, on a classic Heidelberg letterpress.
  • It’s the first time Louis Rossetto has written about the Digital Revolution since he left Wired in 1998.
  • The book is a state of the art reading experience, designed by a legend. In many ways, it’s the summation of everything Erik Spiekermann has learned about book design in his amazing career.
  • It’s literally the first of its kind — the proof of concept for Post Digital Printing, a new technology invented by Erik which will revolutionize the printing of high quality books — the power of modern digital typography married with the superior quality of letterpress printing.
