Anyone know what this font is or one/s similar to it?
Thanks in advance: liz
It's the original Cooper Oldstyle. URW's and Bitstream's versions have been "homogenized" a bit, and lack the tasty little idiosyncrasies of the original; Wordshape's comes close to true, but not entirely...
Hah, I was about to think it was some sort of Goudy face. Were the two contemporaries?
Oswald Bruce Cooper (13 March 1879 - 17 December 1940)
Frederic W. Goudy (Bloomington, Illinois , March 8 1865- Marlborough-on-Hudson, May 11 1947)
Goudy was an early mentor/teacher to Cooper.
Very nice. I'm feeling educated :)
