Bureau Grotesque reintroduces the tooth and character of the nineteenth-century sans.
Developed in 1989 for Roger Black, The Tribune Companies, and Newsweek, the first Grotesques met with immediate success.
Further weights were designed for Entertainment Weekly and Madrid daily El Sol a family of twelve fonts by 1993.
David Berlow and Font Bureau found their models in Stephenson Blake grotesques from the 1800s.
Jill Pichotta, Christian Schwartz, and Richard Lipton expanded the styles further, at which point the family name was shortened to Bureau Grot.
Among other uses, Bureau Grot is recommended for Newspaper and Magazine use.
NOTE: There is a separate Typedia entry for the original Bureau Grotesque and its 12 weights (eg: FiveOne, ThreeThree), which are still available.
