MoMA Acquires 23 Typefaces

An interesting thing has happened at the MoMa this week. It was announced Monday that they have acquired 23 typefaces for their permanent collection.

For full details link: here.

A few of the selections are represented below. This is definitely a selection made by a curator with a particular vision in mind, and a specific story to tell about typography. It's worth looking at to see how such an open field can be narrowed down by creating this type of collection (pun intended).
