Cooper Black font family

Overview

Popular since it was designed in 1921, Cooper Black has inspired many imitations. However, although many type designers and manufacturers have tried to market similar designs, none has outdone Cooper Black. The blunt and rounded forms, blurred serifs, and very small counters make this a warm and friendly face. Its most distinctive features are the backward tilt of the counters on the 'O' and 'Q', as well as the elliptical dots in the 'i' and 'j'. More than anything else, its blackness draws attention to Cooper Black. The lack of contrast in the design calls for using this font on a clearly divergent background.
