Linden Hill

I have tossed a new font family, called Linden Hill, into the Crud Factory rubbish dump. The fonts are based on Frederic Goudy’s letterpress typeface Deepdene.

About the naming, it is all related to the New York City borough of Queens. 40 Deepdene Road is where Goudy lived for about a decade in Forest Hills Gardens. Linden Hill, on the other hand, is what you are looking at if you stare past center field at a Mets home game. It is where my grandparents lived, though I spent much more time watching planes land at LaGuardia than trying to see Mets games through an imaginary telescope. (From pictures I have seen, I suspect the new stadium would offer a better view than the old one.)


(Some may recognize that I made available ‘pre-release’ versions of these fonts quite a while ago. Little of the work was done recently.)
