Well this is something I’ll definitely check out when I make it over to Berlin. Buchstaben Museum (Museum of Letters) is devoted to preserving and documenting letterforms. It is nestled away in the back of a mall and houses a beautiful collection of found type, which the owners have rescued from around the world. The sizes of type vary, and the conditions of each piece too. All the letterforms are piled up over several rooms, some rooms are color coordinated. Neon letters that are still in working order are presented in all their glory. Sounds like a graphic designer’s dream museum!
