Neuseidler's letters are each drawn with a single, mono-weight line, which is rounded at its ends. The overall forms of the letters are geometric and relatively rectilinear. The family's three weights, Neuseidler Regular, Neuseidler Bold, and Neuseidler Heavy each have supplementary Alternate fonts available for purchase. These three fonts, Neuseidler Alternate Regular, Neuseidler Alternate Bold, and Neuseidler Alternate Heavy, each contain extra ligatures, swash capitals, and special decorative letters for use in conjunction with their respective fonts. Using Neuseidler together with its Alternates offers additional typographic choices that are not available in many other fonts modeled after the art nouveau style. Neuseidler's weights ship in OpenType format, and incorporate old style figures.
Art nouveau is sometime referred to as the first international artistic movement. Artists and designers from different countries were employing similar methods in their work, yet creating slightly different styles. For example, the French style was quite different from the Viennese. French art nouveau was typically more curvilinear and organic. This formalism was applied to type design and lettering as well.
