Font Founders Series #1: Frederic Goudy

24 de mayo de 2016 by Extensis


“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.
