Californian FB font family

Overview

In 1938 Goudy designed California Oldstyle & Italic, perhaps his most distinguished typeface, for private use of the University of California Press. In 1958 Lanston reissued it generally as Californian. Recently the roman was digitized for California by Carol Twombly; David Berlow redrew it when preparing italic & expert sets. Bold was drawn by Jane Patterson for the Font Bureau, who used it privately for four years before release.
