The exhibition, 50:Helvetica The Lifetime Of A Typeface – which we covered in the July issue of CR – opened on Wednesday evening at the Design Museum on London’s South Bank. The exhibition is actually running in two distinct phases: The pieces of work representing 1957 through to 1981 are showing until 9 August. Then, from 10 August, the other 25 works (1982 to 2007) will run until the close of the show on 31 August.

Prints of the work are available from the Design Museum shop – but there are just 50 prints of each work so if you’re interested in bagging one, get in there quick! Already, James Jarvis’ celebration of 1974’s release of Kraftwork’s seminal Autobahn album has proved enormously popular…

The show is free to view at The Design Museum and you can also view the work on the Blanka website, using the following link: http://blanka.co.uk/50_years_of_helvetica/
