Great video showcasing the amazing work of German-born type designer Berthold Wolpe ahead of a London exhibition of his work.

Introducing The Wolpe Collection. Five typefaces by Berthold Wolpe, revived by Toshi Omagari, now reissued by Monotype.

The Wolpe Collection brings together a restored set of typefaces by Berthold Wolpe – the designer behind some of the most beautiful and memorable book jackets released by British publisher Faber & Faber. Spanning striking display type, roman text faces, blackletter, and little-known designs that introduce a quirky retro sci-fi flavor, The Wolpe Collection, now revived by type designer Toshi Omagari, reinvigorates the work of a man who was quietly instrumental in the world of British visual culture.
