Exhibition TYPO 9010

The use of typeface in Czech graphic design in 1990-2010

As a part of a series of cultural events to remember the 100th anniversary of the Czech Republic, the exhibition of graphic art TYPO 9010 was inaugurated at the Graphic Art Museum in Tehran on 14 November 2018.

The exhibition presents Czech digital typefaces created in the first two decades of the newly acquired post-revolutionary liberty after the Velvet Revolution in 1989. The exposition begins in 1990, when computers were starting to replace phototypesetting and copying letters by hand, ending in 2010, when almost a dozen small type foundries were operating in the country.

The exhibition is related to the encyclopaedic publication Typo 9010 (BiggBoss, 2015). Zuzana Lednická, the graphic designer of the publication, and the book’s publisher Vladimír Brož (518), representative of the BiggBoss cultural organization, opened the exhibition in Tehran.

The exhibition will stay displayed for 3 months.
