A visual tour of Berlin: How typography gives the city its character.
From neon lettering on store fronts to tiled subway signs, Berlin is full of exciting typography. The “Berlin Typography” design project has been documenting the diversity of type in this rapidly changing city for years.
The most beautiful examples are gathered in this volume and show the typographic richness of Berlin: stylish neon signs of pharmacies, hair salons or flower stores, lettering on libraries and universities, bridges and monuments, as well as the most diverse typefaces used on street signs and in subway or S-Bahn stations.
With over 230 images, accompanied by an informative introduction on the history of urban typography and short captions that locate each photo in the city: the perfect souvenir for Berlin tourists and an ideal gift for true Berliners and anyone interested in graphic design and urban culture.
