Copperplate CC Serif Font

Copperplate CC Serif Font is a serif display bold modern, a revival of Copperplate Gothic. Designed by Frederic Goudy in 1902, Copperplate Gothic is an American classic. The mix of simple capital letterforms with delicate serifs feels both sturdy and refined. It has made its way onto business cards, bank windows, and high quality mustard labels.

Unfortunately the original drawings were lost in a 1939 fire, but the American Type Founder catalogues from that era provide some insight into the Goudy’s design. I wanted to stay true to the source material, so this digitization differs from other versions. Unlike some, there are no small caps by default, as this was not originally present. The serifs are also smaller then most reproductions, and I have elected to keep the somewhat bizarre naming convention that calls the non bold version “heavy”.

Thanks Cowboy Collective and Indestructible Type for creating such a great font!. Copperplate CC Serif Font is free for personal & commercial use. Please download and enjoy, or can search more similar fonts on befonts.
