Showing the archive around

Fust & Friends is the umbrella under which a private collection of type specimens, hand-lettered book covers, posters, and ephemera is publicized, shown online and, hopefully, exhibited in the real world. The Fust archive formed the basis of an exhibition curated by Jan Middendorp that was part of The Way of Type, a travelling exhibition organized by Liu Zhao that visited several Chinese cities in spring-summer 2017. Here’s a somewhat random selection, changing over time. Captions to the slide show at the bottom of each page.
