designed on the basis of hand drawn letters by Jože Plečnik from the archive collection
Plecnik House Ljubljana
July 2–October 17, 2021
Plecnik is a typeface, designed on the basis of research of the archive collection of hand drawn letters by Jože Plečnik. The most renowned Slovene architect is best known for his architectural works, but his influence on Slovene typography is somewhat less accentuated. From the initial architectural plan to the final details on the building, Plečnik planned his projects in a holistic and careful manner; which follow a unified concept and create a thoughtfully designed finished whole. Inscriptions on monuments, book typesetting, book covers, architectural plan elements, ex-librises, additions in the form of ornaments, initials – these are also among Plečnik’s prolific works, which had a strong influence on Slovene typography.
The exhibition showcases the research and development of the Plecnik typface. Typeface and Plecnik booklet are available in our shop.
