Kenny Rogers – “Lucille” / “Till I Get It Right” German and Belgian single covers

My understanding is that Goudy Fancy originated at Lettergraphics, as a swash variant of Goudy Heavyface Italic. It’s shown in their 1968 Letter-Fan specimen in two widths as Goudy Swash/Fancy and Goudy Long Swash/Fancy. Sometime between 1971 and 1976, the condensed was adopted by Letraset for dry-transfer lettering, with numerous alternates.
There are at least three commercial digitizations, including Josh Korwin’s Goudy Fancy (Three Steps Ahead, 2004/2006, minimal character set, but including the alternates), Rebecca Alaccari’s Goudy Two Shoes (Canada Type, 2006, with alternates including new ones), and Nick Curtis’ Tickety Boo NF (Nick’s Fonts, 2008, only some alternates).
Here’s the style range of neo-Jenson from a Headliners catalog. “Note – this shadow may require special handwork.”
