Description: Cooper Black Swash Font
Cooper Black, the most famous & successful of Oswald Cooper’s type designs was released in 1920, following a year of development fleshing out the weight of the typeface & filling out the full character set. Cooper redrew the lowercase characters multiple times, toying with the rounded forms of the “m” & “n” & engaged in a lively debate with Barnhart Bros. & Spindler’s General Manager Richard McArthur over the final form as McArthur requested that the typeface be drawn bolder & bolder. Cooper famously said the face was “for far-sighted printers with near-sighted customers”, & the public agreed. Sales of Cooper Black were voluminous, & Barnhart Brothers & Spindler had a difficult time keeping up with the demand for the typeface. Conservative typographers were critical of Cooper Black, though it was overwhelmingly popular, helping to shape the American advertising landscape through the 1920s & 1930s.

Cooper released swash characters for his popular Cooper Black Italic, but never an upright set of swash capitals. A number of prototype versions appeared in the 1960s & 1970s, though none have been ushered into the digital age. Cooper Black Swash has been created in the spirit of Oz Cooper’s work & is a design that we believe he’d be quite pleased with!

Includes OpenType & TrueType versions!
