Futura : The Typeface, Hardback Book


This is a stunning examination of one of the most popular typefaces ever created, Futura.

Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, the story of Futura is a fascinating one.

Charting its Bauhaus origins to its use as the first font on the moon in 1969, this book tells the story of how the typeface went from representing radicalism in design to dependability.

It is durable and timeless, and is worthy of being rediscovered and celebrated.
