Designer Spotlight: Frederic W. Goudy
Frederic W. Goudy was appointed Art Director of the Lanston Monotype Machine Company of Philadelphia in 1920 and would remain in this position until 1947. Goudy created over 100 classic faces, thirty of which were created specifically for Lanston. It would be hard to imagine how much the general reading public would have suffered without the devoted contribution that Goudy left.
Included in the LTC Goudy collection are currently 26 font families, including, Goudy Text, Goudy Initials, Deepdene, Garamont, Kennerley, Goudy Sans and Goudy Oldstyle.
