The Cardozo Kindersley Workshop [Lida Lopes Cardozo]

Lida Lopes Cardozo was born in Leiden, The Netherlands, in 1954, and was married to David Kindersley. A well-known letter cutter, she organized David Kindersley's Workshop in 1987. Coauthor with David Kindersley of Letters Slate Cut (Taplinger Pub Co, 1981). After Kindersley's death in 1995, she set up a stonecutting / handwriting / type design site called The Cardozo Kindersley Workshop, to continue what Kindersley started. The list of typefaces published by The Cardozo Kindersley Workshop:

  • Emilida (Timothy Guy and Lida Lopes Cardozo).
  • Kindersley Grand Arcade (2005, The Cardozo Kindersley Workshop). Lida writes: Kindersley Street (aka Kindersley Grand Arcade), our new typeface based on Kindersley Mot, is being designed, for the Grand Arcade, Cambridge. It will have a newly designed lower-case to fit the original capitals from David Kindersley's drawings which have now properly digitised. It is the official revival of Kindersley's MoT Serif (1952) [a design that had been submiited for use on UK signs to the British Ministry of Transport]. This typeface is free.
  • Kindersley Street Italic (Lida Lopes Cardozo and Eiichi Kono). An italic to compliment Kindersley Street.
  • Pulle (Lida Cardozo): A new titling typeface with a difference. It's called Pulle, and instead of different weights it has 1000 different heights, starting from tall and getting taller. Lida named it after her brother, Paul Pulle, who sadly died in the year 2000. Lida has been drawing and cutting this particular letterform for over 20 years. The typeface was used publicly for the first time for a glass panel in the recently refurbished Cambridge Central Library.
