Last week I visited the ON-TYPE: Texts on Typography Exhibition at the Bauhaus Archive / Museum of Design in Berlin. The exhibition displays a set of font patterns and typography magazines from relevant type design of the twentieth century. As a Typography enthusiast I was thrilled to see the some classic Bauhaus and Swiss typography.
The exhibition room has some panels where you can take a leaflet samples of each one of the fonts displayed. There are also some great books about typography and its central theories mostly from German speaking countries. The curators also blended in debates in the history of typography mostly about legibility and digitalization.
Some of my favorite fonts of the exhibition:

It is not allowed to take photos of the exhibition therefore I am placing a link to the official Flickr account of Marcel Häusler.
