No boldface

No boldface on this page: hypsometry.com/

Yes, he likes my Goudy. A funny thing about the Goudy is that it is something I made so I would be able to stop thinking about it all the time and get some sleep, rather than out of love outright. There was an unpleasant obsession about what likely was Goudy's best work. I've never thought seriously of making a Goudy Bold, because the goal of putting Goudy Oldstyle out of my mind was satisfied (not to mention that Goudy's drawings for the bold weren't used).

Working on Goudy Oldstyle probably played a role in my transition to a preference for a horizontal crossbar on the 'e'. It also made me aware of how incredibly common Goudy Oldstyle is in packaging design, especially.
