Skrift i Oslo (“Letters in Oslo”) was an exhibition documenting signage in Oslo between 1864 and 1964. The exhibition featured 704 photographs of handmade sings and lettering, and aimed to reveal Oslo’s visual dialect; from the time when letters were produced locally. Many of those old signs were further developed and extrapolated into full font families, forming the foundation of the type foundry Store Norske Skriftkompani. The exhibition was designed by Arve Båtevik.
