PREAMBLE
The goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and open framework in which fonts may be shared and improved in partnership with others.

The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded, redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives, however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.

Font Information

Cooper Black is perhaps one of the most ubiquitous fonts, but far less known is its regular weighted counterpart known simply as Cooper. First introduced to the world in the early 1920s, Cooper Black was always part of a family of fonts that included a non-black version, but over the past century, this family has been largely forgotten, leaving only Cooper Black.

This is a shame because the regular weight version of Cooper is beautiful. It has an organic, Art Nouveau, feel to it. Straight lines bow inward like the trunk of a tree, acenders curve backwards and forwards like the delicate stems of flowers. There is hardly a straight line or a sharp corner to be found. It accomplishes this while still be legible at text sizes, making it suitable for laying out a book or other passages of text.

Many of these delightful details are lost in the big bubbly boldness of the Black weight. I don’t want them to be forgotten forever, and so Cooper* is thoroughly researched, meticulously digitized, revival of the original Cooper series.
