“Cyrus Highsmith began work on Daley’s Gothic in 1997, experimenting with a steel brush and ink on paper. After sketching a few characters, he headed to the nearest computer and played out the rest of the alphabet. He went on to draw many variations, and in 1998 finally settled on three weights with matching italics. He named the family after his mother, who taught him how to draw.” [Font Bureau]
