ABOUT







Futura: The Typeface

In 2016, Petra Eisele, Annette Ludwig and Isabel Naegele published Futura: Die Schrift (in German). The English version Futura: The Typeface (Laurence King) followed in 2017. This book includes essays by Steven Heller, Erik Spiekermann, Christopher Burke and others, and was edited by Petra Eisele (Professor of Design History and Design Theory at the University of Mainz), Annette Ludwig (Director of the Gutenberg Museum) and Isabel Naegele (Professor of Typography at the University of Mainz).

The publisher's blurb: Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, the story of Futura is a fascinating one. Charting its Bauhaus origins to its use as the first font on the moon in 1969, this book tells the story of how the typeface went from representing radicalism in design to dependability. It is durable and timeless, and is worthy of being rediscovered and celebrated.
