Grueber, a new release by Dalton Maag, is a two weight slab serif for display usage. The typeface is based on designs by Austrian architect Paul Grueber in the early 1900s for castle Hoch Osterwitz.

Dalton Maag also releases true Italic forms for our popular typeface Effra. The addition of Italics makes Effra a versatile choice for any design project.

Very interesting!
Is there any further information on who designed them?

Congratulations. But Grueber is dead! ;-)  I picked up the poster in Berlin and it's now up on my wall – quite an exciting design! Love the cap alternates.

WHAT IS THIS TYPE? YOU CANNOT USE THIS. NO GOOD.

MY MATE FRUTIGER HAS DONE THIS TYPE LONG TIME AGO BUT BETTER EH!

Recognize that quote Franz? You're a funny guy.

Are there alternates for Grueber lower case?
It's rather plain compared to the capitals.

Franz, you refer to Effra, I presume. Do you think this is anything like Frutiger? Well, I have no problems to agree that Frutiger is a good typeface, but Effra is about as close to it as I am as close to become the next UK prime minister.

Nick, no Grueber has no l/c alternates - yet at least. In fact, on the original carvings at the castle, what are now alternates were the actual letters. Together with Lukas we decided that we need more traditional designs in the base keyboard positions to cater for the more conservative tastes. As the l/c had no template to work from we decided for the time being not to include alternate designs.
