Sorts Mill Goudy by chemoelectric Sorts Mill Goudy by chemoelectric
Goudy Oldstyle and Italic, based on American Type Founders specimens. OpenType features include small caps, lining figures (default is hanging figures), standard and discretionary ligatures, and more. Lots of languages.

Current version: 3.1 (as of 4 July 2010)

The license for these fonts is MIT-style, so there are no restrictions on commercial use, no link-back requirements, etc.: [link]

It’s great. :) The copyright status of the graphic may be iffy, I’m not sure.

Okay, thanks I wasn't sure. I'll work on making my own for it then I suppose :)

That particular stock photo is by Jack Hollingsworth, I believe. Good stuff, I really like his work. For some reason, it is my favorite type of photography. But using the commercial stock perhaps causes me more trouble than it is worth; it’s been an issue on several occasions (though in one case I had the impression that the people using my font were simply going to license the stock for themselves).

No worries I completely understand, and since I do not wish to license the stock I will make my own sample as I have done with a few others on the list. I just prefer using a font designer's image over my own as they are generally more interesting, making a "more interesting" post for my would be visitors to read! :) Yours with the couple as the Goudy's being a particularly creative presentation for the font. I agree, it is good stuff :) But in the scheme of things, having a "more interesting," preview image in my post is of the least importance, being an "artist" myself I have no desire or intention of utilizing someone else's work in any manner that would not be in accordance with their wishes. Very shortly here I will replace the graphic with one that I will create using the font, with the credit to you and return link here remaining the same of course. Thank you so much again. I really appreciate all the wonderful work you do. You make beautiful serifs :) I will send you a note as soon as the new image is up :) Have a great day.

They are nice in this one, aren’t they? Thanks. :)

How to make serifs is a problem I think about day and night. Serifs seem to be the hardest things to interpret from scans, due to ink spread, and so some approach to the problem is needed. Also serifs are very easy to make so that they are rendered terribly by a PostScript or PDF interpreter, and that fact requires a lot of thought in each case. (How these things work in TrueType I don’t really know.)

Serifs are very hard to make with Spiro, which is just one reason I went back to editing with cubic beziers. My use of Spiro likely is responsible for a lot of my dissatisfaction with (the current version of) Juvelo, and in particular with its serifs, which are too ‘cold’ for this typeface.

Yes, I think you have done a really nice job interpreting and creating the serifs on both Oldstyle and Italic. Definitly mad props on your meticulous work!

I can imagine the effort that would go into creating an accurate, or even decent looking font for that matter, with the additional requirements of interpreting and deciphering the best representations for the serifs curves and angles.

And then optimizing them for print, how do you even learn about that? And How fonts render when printed trial and error, experience or actual study/education if I may ask? I'm not concerned about learning that for my fonts as they are primarily for screen, but I am curious as much of font design is learned from trial and error/experience.

And as for Juvelo, that is another one of your works I am particularly fond of. I am sure that any improvements you could make in the future might be nice, but I kind of like it's more sharply angled serifs and curves. Might be a *bit cold, but they can't all be Goudy ;P

Still, again I don't doubt your eye on type, if you ever did rework the serifs so they are less "cold" it would most definitly be an amazing transformation
