Goudy Bookletter Font – Free Open Source Font for Download

Goudy Blackletter Font

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.
