Bauhaus – The Origin of the New Typography

 

This book is about the history and evolution of Bauhaus typography, from the early years of Herbert Bayer and Tschichold’s New Typography til today, analyzing fonts with direct reference to the movement. It includes original sketches, revivals, experimentations, decorative, hybrid, display and text fonts, classifying the type foundries involved with biographies of the designers, student works and bauhaus-inspired fonts. Generally, the book analyzes the evidence of the movement’s impact on typography and graphic design today. As a passionate designer for Bauhaus, Andreas Xenoulis, graphic designer based in Greece, had the challenge of designing a book for his favorite movement. The result is fantastic!
