Looking for Akzidenz Grotesk Font

I am looking for Akzidenz Grotesk font.  I've got three projects waiting to go to press but I am missing this font.  I've found it on the web for $299 and up.  I don't want to buy a font for this kind of money that I may only need once.

Thanks for your help.

lkminnick,

That's because H. Berthold, the font foundry that produces it, only releases the entire font family, and not individual fonts within the package.

Adobe's Folio is similar, other than than I don't have any suggestions for you.

Akzidenz Grotesk is expensive, but there are very similar alternatives.

Arial and Helvetica are very similar (and free if you have a PC or Mac respectively - in fact I think Macs ship with both fonts)

However nicer alternatives include Swiss 721, Zurich, Akkurat, DIN Schrift, among others.

My recommendation: Akkurat. You can buy individual fonts from the family and it has quirks similar to Akzidnenz. Hopefully cheaper also.
