Last Sunday two friends and I visited the Buchstabenmuseum (museum of letters) in Berlin. It’s a small museum near the Alexanderplatz, grounded by the association of letters in 2005. It’s purpose is to save old shop signs all around Germany and beyond. Since I’m a huge fan of typography this museum was on top of my Berlin bucket list. It didn’t disappoint me. The big letters were fascinating, some were even taller than me. And some I would have love to take with me for our home, especially the ones with light. My friend was particular excited, because she remembered seeing some of these signs years ago live, when the shops were still open in Berlin. For her it was a journey back in time.
