Brauer alternative

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post here. I'm trying to track down an alternative, but something similar to Brauer. If anyone has some recommendations, that would be great.

Thanks,
Aaron

Hmm... I doubt you'll find many other semi-condensed, squared, slightly rounded grotesques with chopped-off "t" and "f" left crossbars and hanging "r". Why not use the real thing, if you have specific needs?
Which aspect of Brauer Neue is important? If you're looking for squareness and slight condensation, try FTF Flama Condensed or DIN Condensed (Not FF DIN). For rounded corners, try AG Book Rounded, though that's a lot rounder.

Do you mean Breuer or something different?

I thought he meant Brauer Neue from Lineto.

Thanks for the suggestions Satyagraha. It was the slightly rounded-ness similarities that I was after. I would love to use Brauer, but it's been popping up everywhere of late around here (melbourne) so was just tying to find something else that had that warm but solid feel to it.

and yes, I meant Brauer by Lineto

Note: Hermes just got an update — more weights, italics, and stylistic alternates (including two-story a). Additional styles haven’t gotten to the vendors yet (sorry, Stephen). The expansion was just released on FB’s site yesterday, literally.

Great news! Italics, yay! And the alternate glyphs for 'a' and 'g' give it an almost entirely new flavor.
