Museum of Letters (Berlin)

I was a bit slow to discover this amazing place, but, gosh, what a place it is. The Museum of Letters in Berlin (site in German) and a Core77 showcase about the Museum, in English.

Two burning questions: a) how on earth did it get funded, and, b) how did they manage to collect all these examples? (For anyone who’s tried collecting old signs, you’ll know how difficult it can be: even if you happen to be there on the right day and the sign or demolition people are sympathetic, it’s still entirely possible to lose these things in dumpsters or scrap heaps, or for them to be spirited away, perhaps into someone’s private collection.)
