Font Bureau, Inc. is proud to announce the release of Bureau Grot, an expansion to long-time favorite Bureau Grotesque. The 15 new styles, including heavier weights and new widths, add to the nineteenth-century sans family first developed by David Berlow in 1989.
With the 2006 release, Font Bureau replaces the “numerical” width-weight system of the 1993 FB Grotesque series with “names” instead, as most software programs require. To improve menu access to these longer names, “Bureau Grotesque” has been shortened to the already familiar “Bureau Grot.” The 2006 release will substitute for the corresponding style from the 1993 release with no reflow of text.
