Goudy

Font Designer: Frederic W. Goudy , 1916
In 1915, Frederic W. Goudy designed Goudy Old Style, his twenty-fifth typeface, and his first for American Type Founders. Flexible enough for both text and display, it is one of the most popular typefaces ever produced, frequently used for packaging and advertising. Its recognizable features include the diamond-shaped dots on i, j, and on punctuation marks, the upturned ear of the g, and the base of E and L.
Several years later, in response to the overwhelming popularity of Cooper Black, Lanston Monotype commissioned Frederic W. Goudy to design heavy versions of Goudy Old Style. Goudy Heavyface and Goudy Heavyface Italic were released in 1925. The huge success of Goudy’s typefaces led to the addition of several weights to many of his typefaces: designers working for American Type Founders produced additions to the family and in 1927 Morris Fuller Benton drew Goudy Extra Bold.

Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
