About this font family
Thirteen or 14 years ago I admired, out loud, a book I found on a shelf in Matt Carter's office. That Christmas I was pleasantly surprised to find that Matt had found another copy of the book and he gave it to me. The book was about the life of Oswald Cooper and it contained numerous specimens of Cooper’s lettering jobs. Among them was an interesting image of 7 letter that spelled out the word ‘Robusto’. These letters were used as the model for the font Robusto. All I needed to do was develop 221 other glyphs to finish the font.
