The Wolpe Exhibition
29 Sep-04 Dec 2017
The Type Archive, London
The Wolpe Exhibition, in partnership with The Type Archive, is a month-long exhibition to celebrate the launch of a new collection of typefaces, originally designed by Berthold Wolpe, now revived by Monotype.
At The Wolpe Exhibition, long-standing institute, The Type Archive will open its doors to the public for the very first time.
Visitors can expect a showcase of never-before-seen design work and original drawings by Berthold Wolpe set alongside a brand new typeface collection by Monotype and type designer, Toshi Omagari. Partners of the exhibition include Eye Magazine, Faber & Faber, The Sainsbury’s Archive / Museum of London Docklands, and the Wolpe family.
The Wolpe Exhibition celebrates a great designer with an outstanding body of work: Berthold Wolpe. In the 1930s, he designed several groundbreaking typefaces, most of which later faded from view. Until now. This collection of unique and distinctive typefaces, remastered by Toshi Omagari of The Monotype Studio, shines a light on these lost classics.
