Stephen G. Moye

Designer from Cranston, Providence, RI, b. 1947, who made these free typefaces:

  • Architext (1991). An octagonal typeface. Artlookin (1991) and Trooklern (1991) are identical.
  • CiviRegular (a free version of Civilite by Moye and Beatty).
  • Fleurons A (1991-1993). Based on A Suite of Fleurons by John Ryder.
  • Goudy Hundred (1999). A rendering of Goudy's Bertham font, which in turn was named after Goudy's wife Bertha. The drawings and matrices were lost in a fire in 1939.
  • Hook Read (1991).
  • Kellnear (1991).
  • Koch (1991). A rendering of Rudolf Koch's Antiqua.
  • Lichtner (1991). Livia (1991) is identical. A Trajan pair of typefaces.
  • Paddington (1997, a simulation of Edward Johnston's writing for the London Transport in 1918).

Author of Fontographer: Type by Design (MIS Press, 1995), a book set in Livingston, a font Moye designed himself. Moye was saddened by the demise of Fontographer at the hands of Macromedia, and elated by its resurrection at FontLab in 2005. He also wrote Tex TypeSpec [free PDF at CTAN].
