The division in postwar Berlin was evident not only in the presence of the wall, the street signs on either side bore two different typefaces. As the wall came down, Verena Gerlach and Ole Schäfer captured and documented the designs and from this, the FF City Style Volume was born. In celebration of the Day of German Unity, the FF City Street Type Volume is on sale.
