Type Talk in Berlin

Books in the Digital Age
Posted by Gestalten—04/2014

The 10th edition of Berlin's Type Talk series will take place next Tuesday, April 29 at Apple Store Kurfürstendamm. Erik Spiekermann, Helmut Ness of Fuenfwerken and Gestalten's Robert Klanten have been invited to discuss the future of the book in the digital age.

E-books are quick, interactive and don't use up any space in the book shelf, but they surely cannot replace the tactile experience of a real book. What does digitalization mean to printed matter? Will printed books survive the digital age, or even profit from it? Reserve a seat via Apple Store Berlin and join us for the discussion next week. This free event will be held in German.

Type Talk Nº 10 at Apple Store Berlin: Tuesday, April 29, 19:00–20:00.
