- Ha!! Love the Fred Goudy quote!! I seem to think some variation of that quote every time I see something new and original.
Thanks for the laugh!

Indeed, as Fred Goudy liked to say...
"The old guys [gals] stole all the best ideas"
The cultural context is our common wealth. All intelligent thought and
creative effort comes from a shared experience of language --
symbolic, semantic, and visual.
There's way too much precocious cleverness and egotistical chest
beating in the world already.
On the other hand, don't try to copy my typefaces without asking ;-)
