Hi fellow Typophiles

I am currently researching the history of Akzidenz Grotesk. If anyone knows of any books or web-sites, in fact,
anything related. I will be very grateful for the assistance.

Does this typeface get less attractive the more I look at it?

It's not the typeface that changes, it's you.

There are no books that describe the history of Akzidenz Grotesk in detail, even Berthold’s books about the foundry and its type gives AG almost no notice. Your best bet is to dig through the old Typophile threads (use google) and locate the two existing long threads on the subject.

Many thanks chaps,

I had pretty much come to that conclusion myself, I do know of some other sources so I will gives those a go, regards its attractiveness, I think its purposeful, scientific, clear and modern, yep I pretty much hate it as well.
still, researchers cant be chooser's
