English: Frederic Goudy's University of California Old Style typeface in regular and italic styles, compared to two digitisations: Californian FB and Berkeley Old Style Medium. The sample images are from Goudy's memoir, "A Half-Century of Type Design and Typography", which is in the public domain (copyright not renewed). Spacing is manually adjusted to match the metal type. The quote is part of a short text presenting Goudy's famous quote "The old fellows stole all of our best ideas," humorously exemplifying his belief in the continued primacy of old-style serif designs.
