Rudolf Koch and the Offenbacher Werkstatt with Rob Saunders

Ralf Herrmann

Rudolf Koch (1876-1934) designed Kabel, Neuland, Koch Antiqua (AKA Eve), and over a dozen other typefaces. He was a seminal figure in the twentieth-century revival of calligraphy, an author and private press printer, and a revered and influential teacher. This talk will cover the work of Koch and his collaborators in the Offenbacher Werkstatt, including students Berthold Wolpe and Warren Chappell, in a high-definition show and tell from the extensive Koch collection at Letterform Archive.

Rob Saunders is the curator and chairman of the Board of Directors of the Letterform Archive. He is a designer, teacher, publisher, and management consultant. He taught at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University, while serving freelance clients and agencies, before founding a book publishing enterprise that included Alphabet Press (graphic design), Picture Book Studio (children’s books), and Rabbit Ears Books (book/audio packages), which was acquired by Simon & Schuster. Prior to becoming Curator of Letterform Archive he served as a creative and marketing consultant with clients in the hospitality, technology, and financial industries.
