The Mundräuber-Handbuch is a manual for those who appropriate fruit for their own consumption (scrumping in British English). The book was edited by Mundraub, a platform that campaigns for the use of freely accessible fruit and the revival of the commons. The design was provided by Rugwind, pairing the text face Vollkorn with Tagesschrift for headlines.

Vollkorn is a chunky serif that started out in 2005, as a first attempt into type design by Friedrich Althausen, then a student at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Five years later, Vollkorn had grown into a full-fledged family with four styles, released under the SIL Open Font License.

Tagesschrift is a free font, too, available under a Creative Commons license. It was created by Yanone, another Weimar alumnus. The lively serif is the result of a workshop that Yanone gave at his Alma Mater in 2005. The whole design process took only one day, hence the name – Tagesschrift means day font. (Yanone admits that he needed another day to do the kerning, so technically, it is a two-day font.)
