New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've been doing some research on design and typography in Germany, roughly from just before the turn of the century until 1945. There seems to be a wealth of information on this topic. I have especially been happy with the fairly recent research on blackletter, a form that seems near and dear to many typophiles.
I am wondering now about type and graphic design after the wall went up, in East Germany in particular. I know you are very knowledgeable on type history; please forgive my ignorance in regards to this period in history. I am seeking sources of information, or interesting asides, that may be hard for me to uncover at first. Just to get started...
I am particularly interested in how individual designers fared after the wall cut them off from the greater design community.
