Copperplate in Scottland!!!


We recently toured the great country of Scotland and was pleasantly surprised at the ubiquitous use of Copperplate! The majority of our time was in Edinburgh (lovely city as they say) and we seemed to be delighted at every turn with the unmistakeable and strikingly handsome Copperplate Gothic Bold.

In this particular sighting we found CGB at the “Scotch Whisky Tasting Experience” hiding in the downstairs bar area depicting the harvesting of the barley. In this particular sighting we can see how the Scott’s use CGB slightly differently than we do here in the states.

In this case A smaller font size can be used to illustrate this very important part of the whiskey making process because the font itself is so strong and so clear. It was also apparent as the evening progressed the symbiotic relationship between scotch and Copperplate, the more Scotch we drank, the more CGB we were able to see.

So thank you Scotland for your thistles, kilts and use of CGB. As William Wallace a famous Scotsman once said in the movie Braveheart, “Tell them…that Copperplate…is the only font… for MEEEE!”
