Small letters only was introduced at the bauhaus in 1925. “wir schreiben alles klein, denn wir sparen damit zeit” is written on the lower part of the letterhead as an explanation. “We write everything in small letters to save time”. With a typewriter you had to use your little fingers to shift the capital letters, a way off from the keyboard, which takes a bit of time. That’s the reason why. Design: Herbert Bayer
