Cooper fan club

Monday 29 July 2002

To follow the Bodoni incident, here’s another web homage to a hero typographer: Behind the typeface: Cooper Black tells a ripping yarn about Oz Cooper and his best known typeface. My thanks to Dean Allen for pointing out this site​—​and I’ll pass on his warning: 3 MB, Flash 6, laboured satire.

Cooper Black typeface sample

I am an old fan of Cooper Black, though I haven’t used it since 1971, back in the time of rub-down Letraset.
