Based on the roman of Frederic Goudy's Kennerley Old Style (designed and cut in 1911 for a limited edition of "The Door in the Wall and Other Stories" by H G Wells, published by Mitchell Kennerley). The companion italic is a future project. The letters, though not condensed, may seem to fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, giving text an unusually solid appearance.

    2012-02-13 - Colin Watson <> ttf-goudybookletter (2010.07.03-1ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low * Use maintscript support in dh_installdeb rather than writing out dpkg-maintscript-helper commands by hand. We now simply Pre-Depend on a new enough version of dpkg rather than using 'dpkg-maintscript-helper supports' guards, leading to more predictable behaviour on upgrades.

    2011-07-20 - Paul Wise <> ttf-goudybookletter (2010.07.03-1) unstable; urgency=low * Team upload. * New upstream version (LP: #718803) * Drop defoma stuff, since it is obsolete * Switch to dh instead of long-style debhelper * Switch to dpkg-source v3.0 format * Update the Homepage * Add a watch file to check for new versions * Font packages don't have ELF binaries, remove ${shlibs:Depends} * Put the fontforge scripts for building in the right dir * Use "Copyright" instead of "(C)" since the later isn't legally valid * Move to "new" fonts section * Bump Standards-Version, now in compliance
