ABOUT







Stealing sheep

In 1936, Frederic Goudy received a certificate of excellence that was handlettered in blackletter and immediately stated, Anyone who would letterspace blackletter would steal sheep, and this hurt the calligrapher's feelings. Goudy's statement has been misquoted for many years as Anyone who would letterspace lowercase would steal sheep.
