Description

Inspired by Roman inscriptions mentioning the emperor Hadrian, Frederic Goudy designed Hadriano in 1918. (Sol Hess applied tooling to the face in 1932 for Lanston Monotype to create Hadriano Stone-Cut.) FWG was fond of the letter Q and this is one of the faces for which he provided an alternate capital for that character. There is also a font ornament—it’s a beautiful design, but seems rather odd in that while the type face is of a chiseled or engraved nature, the ornament is clearly calligraphic.

As with our casting of the Stone-Cut version, we have manually mortised the long-tailed standard Q and U to provide a perfect fit.
