As the title suggests, Petra Eisele, Annette Ludwig and Isabel Naegele’s lovely hardback book explores one of the most popular typefaces of all time: Futura. Created by German designer Paul Renner in 1927, the sans-serif font was based on geometric shapes with near-even weights. The book explores the typeface’s beginnings through to notable uses and insight behind the design via illustrations and essays by design writers Steven Heller, Erik Spiekermann, Christopher Burke and others.
