Cloister Initials

A typeface made in 1918 by Frederic Goudy. D.J.R. Bruckner: Goudy allowed that this set of capitals was not, strictly speaking, a typeface. American Type Founders had asked for an alphabet in the style of the large center capital A in The Alphabet, and Goudy drew an entire set for them. He said he had not intended it to be cut, but A.T.F. made matrices and sold the type for a while.

Digital versions: LTC Goudy Initials (Miranda Roth for Lanston and P22, 2005: based on the original proofs of large sizes of Cloister Initials), Cloister Initials (2006-2007, Group Type), Initials ATF Cloister (Alter Littera, 2012), Goudy Initials (2008: a free font by Dick Pape), PF Goudy Initials (Paratype).
