Liking Leipzig

I think there are a few people finding it tedious now: me telling them how much I enjoy Leipzig. You can stay in an arts precinct called Plagwitz and the 15 minute bike ride into Zentrum (the city centre) takes you past lakes, along canals and through dense woods — with a good coffee on the bridge at the halfway point.
Maybe the closest place Australia has to this is Adelaide.

Another reason for liking it is that it’s a centre for book design and printing — which is why I need to get back there. Thomas Siemon from Edition Carpe Plumbum with Jo Zarth, a graphic designer / photographer / chinoiserie enthusiast who lives in Leipzig.
