Letters in a new place (Buchstabenmuseum & sunset)

Oxford, Scotland, Brandenburg: Thursday evening was the first moment I felt truly back. The opening of the Buchstabenmuseum's new premises was a highlight. In a former GDR department store near Jannowitzbrücke, the vast collection of rescued letterforms have space to spread out and breath.  The final presentation is still in the works, but typography fans will enjoy the space in its unfinished state.

The light was the hero for the remainder of the evening.

I held my breath as we pulled into Yorckstraße to see if it had lasted – and it had.

Missing Berlin

Aw, I'd been looking forward to the re-opening all summer but I didn't hear about it until now; too late. Bummer!
