It's black, it's white! Brum Design Festival X Design Museum pay tribute to monotype fonts in this #FontSunday extravaganza
From Barbara Kruger through Anthony Burrill to anti-racist graphics or John Anderson's "Think Positive" poster for IBM in the magnificent seventies the recent #FontSunday extravaganza filled the Twitterverse with stunning examples of monotype fonts strictly in Black and White.
Co-curated with Brum Design Festival which returns to the city Birmingham in the summer of 2019, Design Museum's Font Sunday is our favorite way to scroll down Twitter's timeline. Following a selection of this week's black and white dominance. For more follow Design Museum here.
Not just a friend of type, but also a friend of ours – @ErikMarinovich of the incredible @friendsoftype is a master of #BlackandWhite (+colour) type!https://t.co/lBwngjP9pN & https://t.co/ZPI08PDu4D | @DesignMuseum #FontSunday pic.twitter.com/3MrHVmTJ4N— Brum Design Festival (@designfestbrum) May 19, 2019
One of my favourites #BlackandWhite 'Abeceda' by the Czech artist Karel Teige and dancer Milča Mayerová from 1926. I used to have all these characters up on the wall in an old studio, I'm yet to find another blank wall big enough. #FontSunday for @DesignMuseum pic.twitter.com/EgJ6H76ZR8— Lisa Barrett (@lisabarrett_) May 19, 2019

The smartest, most playful system of #type, #image & #grid. I never tire from looking at these Tama Art University posters! #blackandwhite #FontSunday @DesignMuseum @designfestbrum pic.twitter.com/K1nQ8StOXW— Lara Hanlon (@lara_hanlon) May 19, 2019
