Designed by typographer Paul Renner within the concept of the New Typography, the typeface Futura is considered an embodiment of the spirit of the 1920s avant-garde. Accordingly, it determined the modern appearance of many print media, also shaping the look of large brand names. With straight lines and a timeless feel, the catalogue for the special exhibition is designed like the typeface itself. The catalogue accompanied the special exhibition “FUTURA. DIE SCHRIFT.” (FUTURA. THE TYPEFACE.) at the Gutenberg-Museum in Mainz. It was the first exhibition about this typeface in a museum in Germany.
