To give the font a different colour to Pabst or the 'Hearst' font, Goudy attempted to balance the x-height and height of the ascenders and descenders differently. Goudy donated Mostert's text sample to the Library of Congress. This is where the name of the font came from. Crouwel lived in a period of many changes as well.

Both stylistically and technologically this epoch was really tumultuous. One of the most controversial debates was about technology, the dispute between conservative and modernizing elements in German society. The Bauhaus school embraced the technology and innovations by attempting to re-define the notion of art schools. The Jenson roman was an explicitly typographic letter designed on its own terms that declined to imitate the appearance of hand-lettering.

Fleischmann's Twentieth-Century Type Designers book were a new variety; an even-width scheme, compressed rounds, all-vertical stressing, and triangular beak ends of E F L T and Z, all characteristics prefiguring the "classical" moderns of Bodoni and Didot. To understand the production of the early 20th century design movements one needs to bear in mind that economic and political factors played a major role in its definitions. The periods of major conflicts, which have built the history of the world, have also helped build visual languages across design and art disciplines. Renner made his opposition to the Nazis clear, and because of this he has arrested and dismissed from his post in Munich in An open face design similar to Imprint Shadowed but influenced by Didone or Modern serif fonts, such as Didot and Bodoni. Essentially this movement initiated three things: a return to the antiqua-models of the Renaissance, clarity and simplicity of book illustrations, and straightforward technical processes during the production of printed matters.

Advertiser's Romanncpatterns were cut but never cast, all traces lost in Goudy's studio fire. Printing with undeveloped Roman and half-Gothic types, the French pair were too occupied meeting the demand for Humanistic and classical texts to design any original types of their own.

Nazi Germany was rising at the time of its release and only classical German fonts were used in the media such as Franktur. The squared-off letters, mechanical variation between the thick and thin parts of the letters speak of the increasing mechanization of production.

Goudy Cursive is effectively Goudy Old Style with swash caps. This designation was common in Goudy's time; it is now avoided due to confusion with fonts intended for body text. Shermanprivately cast for publisher Frederick Sherman who never used it.

The more decisive catalyst was probably the printing of pocket editions of Latin classics by Aldus Manutius. To give the font a different colour to Pabst or the 'Hearst' font, Goudy attempted to balance the x-height and height of the ascenders and descenders differently.

Besides the traditional typography of books graphic design became a more or less independent branch.

One might draw an analogy with change in the material of a simple hand-tool, when wood is replaced by a synthetic substance: it may do the job as well, but one misses the incidental sensual pleasures of a slightly idiosyncratic, slightly malleable material.

I like to compare it with the lines on a football field. Wim Crouwel served on the military for two years, but after he was done with it inhe went to Amsterdam looking for opportunities.

The carefully modelled serifs follow an artful logic of asymmetry. By using these large faces, Froben developed the title page as a fully organized artistic whole.
