paul renner//bauhaus

Paul Renner was a German typeface designer.  He is most known for the Futura typeface that he created in 1928. According to wikipedia, Renner was interested in fusing the gothic and roman typefaces therefore creating a bridge between the traditional and modern.  The orange and black brochure and poster were created by carol king. I chose to include her piece in my research because i think her piece really showcases Renner's style. I have also included a cover shot and link to a preview of the Art of Typography, a book about paul renner.
