About this font family
Flexible enough for both text and display, its one of the most popular typefaces ever produced, frequently used for packaging and advertising. Its recognizable features include the diamond-shaped dots on i, j, and on punctuation marks; the upturned ear of the g; and the base of E and L.
Goudy Heavyface and Goudy Heavyface Italic were released in 1925. The huge success of Goudys typefaces led to the addition of several weights to many of his typefaces; designers working for American Type Founders produced additions to the family.
In 1927, Morris Fuller Benton drew Goudy Extra Bold.
