Although never a member of the Bauhaus movement himself, the Leipzig-born typographer and poster and book designer Jan Tschichold (1902–1974) is regarded as one of the major champions of functional typography. His works have become classics of graphic design and still inspire people today. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, the German Museum of Books and Writing is temporarily exhibiting typographical milestones in the life’s work of Tschichold.
Wallstein Verlag will publish an accompanying volume on the exhibition, which can be purchased at the museum for 24.00 Euro.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday and public holidays 10:00–18:00, Thursday 10:00–20:00, closed Monday
