Typography in Budapest?

Kristian M's picture

Hello everyone!

I’m leaving Stockholm for Budapest in mid-February and I was wondering if somebody could help me with site propositions (typography related of course), anything from bookstores to cemeteries. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I don't know about book stores or cemeteries, but when I went there about 5 years ago, lots of old shop signage was still in existence. But the city was obviously changing fast - building sites everywhere, and fantastic old buildings being demolished. If you do a lot of walking you may still stumble across some gems.

Good luck!

Kristian, I wrote you an email through your Konstfack address.
p.s. I had a course with Prof. Ulf Klarén back in 2001, way cool !

Yes, there’s an interesting article about that very topic in Ultrabold #1, a journal published by the St Bride Library.
