Frederic Goudy designed National Old Style Roman (Goudy National) in 1916. It is loosely based on a logo he lettered for the National Biscuit Company in 1901. Steve Matteson expanded on Goudy’s original by designing a bold, semibold and matching italics. While much of Goudy’s work is strongly influenced by Venetian types of the 15th and 16th centuries – this design has a truly American quality about it.

Goudy National is ideally suited for monumental effects in headlines and captions. With it’s unique ‘Americana’ feel it can be used in publications and packaging.
