What is the ITC Berkeley Old Style™ font?
Berkeley was originally designed under the name of Californian by Frederic W. Goudy in 1938 for the University of California Press in Berkeley. The UC Press still owns the original typeface, and the 1983 ITC version is a careful redrawing by Tony Stan. It has the flavor of several other Goudy designs, including Kennerley, Goudy Oldstyle, and Deepdene. This is a typeface designed for text applications, therefore, close attention was paid to the relationships of the weights. Book and Medium are close to each other in weight, with larger jumps to the Bold and the Black, used for emphasis and contrast.
