Wilhelm Gronaus Schriftgießerei [Wilhelm Gronau]

Wilhelm Gronau was a German typographer who ran the Wilhelm Gronaus Schriftgießerei in Berlin-Schöneberg from the mid 1800s until early in the 20th century. Typefaces at that foundry include Hohenzollernschrift (1905), Kolumbus and Kolumbus Eng (1905-1906, by Heinrich Wieynck) and Gronau Gotisch (Heinrich Ehlert, 1850). House typefaces include the blackletter typefaces Accidenz-Gotisch, Albion, Alt-English, Alt-Gotisch, Amerikanische Gotisch, Angelsächsisch, Bastard, Canzlei (breite, moderne, musirte, neueste fette, schmale, and umzogene), Deutsch-Gotisch, Diplomen-Gotisch, Moderne Gothisch, all done before 1891, as well as Schmale Zeitungs Gotisch and Universal Gotisch from the 1850-1870 period. Berolina (art nouveau), Sezessions-Initialen, Teutonia and Martagon Ornamente were done ca. 1900. Reichs-Deutsch followed ca. 1904. Specimen books include Brotschriften, Titelschriften für zeitgemÃĪsse Druckausstattung (Berlin, ca. 1902), Moderne Schriften, Einfassungen, Ornamente, Vignetten, Anwendungen (Berlin, ca. 1908), Muster-Sammlung von Wilhelm Gronau’s Buchdruckerei und Schriftgiesserei (Berlin, 1891). The foundry was acquired by Klingspor in 1915.
