Font Founders Series #1: Frederic Goudy
“There is no harm in ‘novelty,’ indeed, novelty keeps things fresh & alive.” – Frederic Goudy
A “short, plump, pinkish, and puckish gentleman,” Frederic Goudy was not always a type designer. In fact, until the age of 40, he was a bookkeeper for a realtor in Chicago. But despite being a late bloomer, he never lost his taste for novelty.
Cheers, Goudy! Today we’re partying “Old Style” with you.
