Copperplate Gothic

By Linotype

Copperplate Gothic was designed by Frederic Goudy and cut by American Type Founders circa 1901. These capital only fonts are basically monotone but have small nib serifs that give the feeling of the engravers tool. Originally designed for use on business cards, letterheads and stationery, the Copperplate Gothic font family now has a wider appeal in advertising and magazine production. The AB and BC names refer to the size relationship of capitals and small capitals.
