ABOUT







Richard Beatty

Richard Beatty (Colorado) made beautiful fonts, often revivals and interpretations of old typefaces and calligraphic designs, around 1990-1993 under the name "Richard Beatty Designs". In all, he created over 500 designs, but most were only for private or corporate use. His favorite designer and influence is Frederic Goudy. Typefaces:

  • Baxter New Style (1988), Baxter Old Style (1988)
  • Beatty Victoriana (1991): a set of five Victorian era fonts---Wanted, Spiral, Recherché, Hermosa and Childs (1985). Hermosa and Childs are nearly art nouveau. Childs is a revival of an 1892 typeface by Hermann Ihlenburg. Puzzling note: the Linotype catalogue says that Kismet was designed in 1879 by John F. Cumming. When you look at Spiral by Richard Beatty, you find a close copy of Kismet; Beatty says it's an "edited version of Kismet", but he holds the copyright. Is this another case of legal cloning? Finally, Wanted is based on an ATF typeface, Fantail, that was already shown in 1889 by the Franklin Type Foundry.
  • Benjamin (2002, BeattyType): from sketches by Ed Benguiat.
  • BernardsHand (beautiful medieval hand)
  • Borders (1990, some designed by R. Mitchell and R. Beatty)
