Today we want to tell you about a really nice letters archive found in Berlin:
The museum of letters ( Buchstabenmuseum). This unique musuem is dedicated to the preservation and documentation of lettering, with a selection of some of the most beautiful signboards from all over Germany.
The work dome by the musuem is amazing: from the the discovery of those pieces of art, to their renovation, and the cataloging of the fonts, their origin, history, materials and preparation techniques.
You’ll be able to see also some of the sketches done by the designers and the architects who made them, with documentaries that emphasize all their work.
Thanks to Anja Schulze , one of the two curators of the museum, we were allowed to enter last August while it was still under renovation, and we were able to see some of the materials that were later exposed, discovering some of the stories of those wonderful letters.
Now that the museum is open and can be visited .
In the collection of photos we document the transition from the restructuring of the museum while we just want to mention it a few images of what it has become now , so you come from the curiosity to visit
An absolutely fascinating place to see.
Other important note is that the museum is a private initiative and receives no public subsidy . So thanks to a group of volunteers has been able to evolve.
We hope it will again bring to light new inspired letters.
