Klingspor Library | 2

I am constantly trying to find some time for my blog but that often doesn’t work. There really is a lot to write about, tons of pictures and at least some ideas on my mind. For now it will be something which is currently in my mind.
Last Tuesday we went to Klingspor Library to do some additional research. Five of us and one scanner embraked on a 24-hour Den Haag — Offenbach trip. Lucas, one of the former t]m students, kindly let us stay for a night in his apartment in Frankfurt. T]m schedule is now getting even more extremely busy, so any trip means missing lessons, but this trip was worth it. Being there you can never say that you are done, it is never enough, even if it is a whole day, as we had this time. It is a perfect place for getting inspiration. Here are some pictures that I selected for an overview of what I was interested in this time. Nobel, Futura, Berthold Grotesk, Akzidenz Grotesk, Royal Grotesk, and of course I could’t pass Caslon.
