An interesting article on the “revolutionary” typefaces of the 1920s can be found at Linotype.com: together with information on the historical background, the article includes illustrations showing the development of constructivist fonts and examples of their use during the period. I find both the movement and the whole era to be extremely fascinating – and the minimalism and restraint of the graphic designs give some of them a truly contemporary feel!
The article is available in English and German.
