Copperplate was the classic nineteenth century engraver’s typeface, consisting of capitals and small caps only. Among others (for example Deberny & Peignot) F. W. Goudy’s cut for ATF around 1901 is probably the most widely known.
Copperplate typefaces are traditionally used for business cards and all that “serious” stuff. My Copperplate Classic is a completely new design, based on some old samples.

Today we do not have those problems any longer, so I could give my Copperplate Classic real sharp pointed serifs. To give you more choice I now added this light cut in three variations, light, sans and rounded!
