During my recent visit to Berlin I stumbled across a truly awesome typography exhibition called ‘Signs of the Times’. I discovered the Buchstabenmuseum entrance in the middle of a central Berlin shopping mall, an unlikely location for this urban signage heaven.
Here I found hundreds of bright and wonderful letters, piled up and illuminating the dark space (I was even given a torch to take around with me!!!). The letters had been collected from Berlin and around the world and saved from neglect and destruction – they each tell a story and you’re sure to recognise some of the letters from well known brands.
Take a look for yourself!
