A typographic profile of the Cheltenham typeface and its history.


Designed in 1896 by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue and Ingalls Kimball, Cheltenham is "one of the most controversial typefaces designed in America." The top of the poster features the "tell-tale square," showing the characteristics of Cheltenham, such as the unique neck and loop of the lowercase g. The lower part of the poster discusses the history, style and uses of the typeface.
