About TAT Zetwerk

TAT Zetwerk (TAT Typesetting) was established in 1998 by Ivo Geradts and Johannes Rustenburg. We became acquainted while studying philosophy at the University of Utrecht, where we worked together as research assistants. During our work at the university we were responsible for the digitalization of several Greek and Latin critical editions and discovered the typographical possibilities of TeX. We decided to continue our partnership in the field of typography after we graduated. Originally we only focused on academic publications, but later we also expanded our services to non-fiction works and novels. TAT Zetwerk has become a flourishing company, currently employing 10 experienced typesetters. All employees have an academic background. We are convinced that accurate typesetting of academic texts is only possible if the typesetter is familiar with the content of such publications.

Ivo Geradts

Ivo Geradts (1971) is specialized in programming TeX layouts. In addition, he is responsible for the font conversion, font management and system administration. He is also in charge of the digitalization projects and assists in the development of our Perl-scripts library. Ivo studied musicology and history of philosophy at the University of Utrecht. In 1999 he graduated cum laude in both fields with a combined thesis on Aristotle's mimesis. During his studies he also took courses at the faculties of Mathematics and Computer Science.

Johannes Rustenburg (1972) is responsible for the daily course of events. He maintains relations with customers, ensures that all deadlines are met and works on different protocols to ensure a uniform work process. Johannes studied medieval studies and history of philosophy. He graduated cum laude in 1998 with a critical edition of books I–III of Johannes Buridanus’ ‘De fallaciis’.

Kai Eigner (1977) is our Perl-specialist. Among other things, he is responsible for programming the document and font conversion as well as for our ACE system.
