Family information


Frederic Goudy designed Hadriano in 1918 as an all-capital titling face; it has since undergone numerous transformations. Goudy, who didn't begin designing type until he was past 45 years old, was one of America's most prolific type designers as well as an outspoken commentator on modern design philosophy. Goudy's inspiration for Hadriano came from classical carved lettering that he saw in the Louvre, where he took rubbings of the letters E, P and R. He left the three letters unaltered and developed the rest of the alphabet around them. In 1930, at the request of the Monotype Corporation, Goudy designed a lowercase alphabet for Hadriano, even though he thought it should remain an all-capital face. Between 1977 and 1981, Compugraphic added new weights and regularized it somewhat. Hadriano is a good choice for book work, lending strength and vigor to headings and display lines.

Menu Names And Style Linking

In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:

Hadriano Std ExtraBold
Hadriano Std ExtraBold Cond
Hadriano Std Light

The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name and then a style option following the guide below.

Menu Name plus Style Option... selects this font
Hadriano Std ExtraBold [none] Hadriano Std Extra Bold
Hadriano Std ExtraBold Cond [none] Hadriano Std Extra Bold Condensed
Hadriano Std Light [none] Hadriano Std Light
Hadriano Std Light Bold Hadriano Std Bold

On the Mac OS operating system, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows applications) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft Word and Adobe® PageMaker® software, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign® software.

One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
