How sans-serif fonts took over the World

The first half of 20th century is the end of the Modern era, the moment when revived typefaces were flooding the typography mainstream. But it was also the time when a completely different font design was booming, called sans serif (which is French for "without serifs"). It wasn't an absolutely new idea at that time, since first sans serif faces had appeared in the beginning of 19th century; but never before this seemingly peripheral and exotic trend claimed so much importance as in 1920s and 30s.

Sans-serif fonts seem to have spread more like any other trend (to me) than how the persecuted overcame their oppressors to change the world. The widespread use of sans-serif font has been a very welcome change in my life.

I hope you find the following video Interesting.
