Adobe’s Hidden Treasures project releases five Bauhaus fonts

Having been lost for almost a century, Adobe has now brought back to life original typography from the legendary Bauhaus School of Design.

After pushing the envelope of design and working to create a better world, the Bauhaus school was shut down by the Nazi regime in the 1930s for being too progressive. Now, working alongside renowned type designer Erik Spiekermann and an international team of student, five historic alphabets have now been fully restored as part of Adobe’s “Hidden Treasures” project.

Each of the fonts was inspired by the original designs of five of the school’s masters – Joost Schmidt, Xanti Schawinsky, Reinhold Rossig, Carl Marx and Alfred Arndt – and can be downloaded from TypeKit. Currently only two of the five fonts are available, but all five will soon be available to Creative Cloud subscribers.
