Copperplate Gothic Bold


Font Fizz


More than a century after its creation, Frederic Goudy's Copperplate Gothic Bold is still turning heads and garnering new generations of devotees. CGB lovers unite at I Love Copperplate Gothic Bold, a kooky blog devoted to the font that "rises above the noise and clatter of common man, transcending space and time." Click on over to catch up on recent CGB sightings (Fenway Park, the packaging for Hebrew National hot dogs), commentary, and "courtesy redesigns," in which non-CGB logos are brought in line. "When you need to communicate trust, love, and the American way, CGB is the font of choice," notes the blog, which recently startled readers with a declaration that it was changing allegiances: to Comic Sans. A glance at the April 1 post date set minds at ease.
