      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 ;-)
