Gradl Max was designed by M.J. Gradl, Mike Freiman and published by Fresh Air Fonts. Gradl Max contains 1 style.  

Max J. Gradl was a German jewelry designer. A Web search today turns up several examples of his work from the turn of the 20th century. He seemed to favor green stones in silver metalwork. Gradl also did advertising work and co-authored a book on architectural design.

Most important for our purposes, though, are the incredible hand lettered alphabets and monograms the man left behind.

I've digitized one of those delightful alphabets and tried to keep it true to the original. Beyond the base character set of letters, numerals and basic punctuation, I had to extrapolate forms that, I hope, hold true to Gradl's design. Enjoy!
