The Bauhaus, but as fonts

Sketches and fragments of letters once hidden deep in the Bauhaus Dessau archive have been turned into five new typefaces released by Adobe

Erik Spiekermann led the Lost Alphabets of Bauhaus Dessau project, working with design students to turn unfinished type specimens into usable digital fonts. Some creative license has been taken with the original designs, with Spiekermann’s team working out “detailed probabilities of the shapes” to understand how the letters would eventually have been finished.
