Goudy Bookletter by Barry Schwartz
Goudy Bookletter 1922 is another open source font from The League of Movable Type, one of my favourite font web sites. It is available for download below. This font is based on Frederic Goudy’s Kennerley Oldstyle.
A few words from the designer : Why I think Kennerley Oldstyle is beautiful: In making this font, I discovered that Kennerley fits together tightly and evenly with almost no kerning. Thus the following words from Monotype specimen books are just: “[W]hen composed into words the characters appear to lock into one another with a closeness common in early types, but not so often seen in later-day creations.” These are letters that take command of the space around them; notice, for instance, the bowed shapes of the v and w.

Sorts Mill Goudy by Barry Schwart
A ‘revival’ of Goudy Oldstyle and Italic font, with features among which are small capitals (in the roman only), oldstyle and lining figures, superscripts and subscripts, fractions, ligatures, class-based kerning, case-sensitive forms, capital spacing. There is support for many languages that use latin script.
Currently there is no bold, but artificial emboldening by a web browser isn’t especially offensive with these fonts.
