The tipoRenesansa Studio, an non-for-profit institute for typography and printing heritage, was founded in 2010 by Marko Drpić, designer and calligrapher, and Maja Licul, designer.

The tipoRenesansa organises events and workshops that aims to revive the interest in and knowledge of movable type printing techniques, now widely replaced by digital technology. The printing equipment could be rented for related project work.

Festival of Letters

The Festival of Letters kicked off in 2010 in the frame of the World Book Capital Ljubljana 2010. The first edition featured a 50-year-old printing press including a tonne of lead and wooden letters that was installed in the Kresija Gallery to print business cards, letters, and sample books.

In 2011 the festival continued with demonstrations of old printing techniques and engages the audience in print- and book-making through various workshops. The venues include Kinodvor Cinema and Mini Theatre.
