Through the printing of psalms, Reichert, who was a student of HAP Grieshaber in Karlsruhe, came to their original language, Hebrew. This awakened his interest in the various forms of the alphabet in different languages. In his prints, Reichert repeatedly takes up letters, genuine objects of a printer, as a motif and uses them as abstract compositional elements. The strict pictorial geometry of the prints is broken up by the choice of colors. In his early text prints, Reichert pressed the wooden letters onto the paper with his foot in a kind of stamp-printing process. When Reichert acquired a toggle press, he began his phase of "Poesia Typografika," a poetry without languages, but with type and letters. Finally, Reichert frees himself completely from formal specifications in his large-format hand prints and since then has used only a spoon as a printing tool, with which he rubs his papers from behind.
