The exhibition will also feature FUSE, a seminal publication on experimental typography published by FSI between 1991 and 2000, which was instigated and edited by London designer Neville Brody. FiFFteen reveals some of the tricks of the type trade and shows how type is used in ways never imagined by its creators. Currently over 4000 fonts and growing, FontFonts have had a profound influence on type design since their debut in 1990 with classics like FF Meta, FF Scala, FF DIN, FF Blur, FF Trixie etc.
