Re: [P22] Lanston Marches In with Goudy
- Lanston Type Co. March 2007 releases feature 24 new font styles plus a
few "Pro" options. You'll find several Frederic Goudy classics and some
rare treasures too!
The highlights of the collection feature a couple of Goudy firsts that
include Camelot, Goudy's first typeface design, and Goudy Modern, his
first attempt at a “Modern” face. Interestingly, he designed the variant
Goudy Open first and then made the solid version of Goudy Modern. In
addition, the new releases include more Goudy with expansions to the
Blackletter font Goudy Text, as well as Globe Gothic and Hadriano, based
on letter rubbings from Goudy at The Louvre in Paris, 1910. Another new
Goudy release is Record Title as digitized by Jim Rimmer and re-mastered
and released for the first time by P22/Lanston. One last Goudy gem is
Goudy Ornate with a newly designed lower case to complement the all Caps
style designed by Goudy in 1931. The final release of this month is not
from Frederic Goudy at all. It is Keystone Ornaments, a set of
surprisingly modern geometric decorative borders and cuts from the
Keystone foundry in 1903.
The new releases are all delivered in PostScript and TrueType formats as
well as basic OpenType format.
