Crud Factory [Barry Schwartz]

Barry Schwartz (b. 1961) is a scientist who lives in St. Paul, MN. He grew up mostly in Kendall Park, NJ, and studied electrical engineering from 1984 until 1990 at Rutgers. He is a fervent and exemplary supporter of the idea of Open Source fonts and software. He runs Crud Factory. His fonts:

  • BonvenoCF-Light (2006). A geometric OpenType format typeface for Latin scripts, having all the letters for Esperanto.
  • Fanwood Text (2011, a Venetian old style typeface). This is a free version of Fairfield (1940-1947, Rudolf Ruzicka). For a commercial version, check Bitstream's Transitional 551.
  • Goudy Bookletter 1911 (2008) is a revival of Goudy's Kennerley Old Style Roman from 1911.
  • Goudy Old Style 14-point (2009).
  • Juvelo (2009). A delicate roman serif face.
  • Linden Hill (2010, OFL). A two-style (roman, italic) revival of Goudy's Deepdene.
  • Prociono CF (2007). See also here.
  • OFL Sorts Mill Goudy (2009). A revival of Goudy Oldstyle and Italic.
  • KisStMTT (or: Sorts Mill Kis) (2010). Based a bit loosely on the early-20th-century revival of Jenson / Kis drawn by Sol Hess for Lanston Monotype.
  • He adapted some glyphs of Gentium for better display with Adobe Reader, and called the new type family Temporarium (2007-2008).
  • Valley (2009). A take on Walbaum.
