In 1919 Oswald Cooper designed his eponymous typeface for BB&S: an informal roman with soft serifs. But it was the hugely successful Black weight, following three years later, that blazed the trail for extra bold advertising type in America.
Cooper Black was also cast as Pittsburgh Black (ToC), Signum (Caslon), Wentworth Black (Wimble). [Reichardt 2011] Alternate swash caps were available for the italic, and many other swashes were later added by phototype shops. Cooper Hilite was released in 1925.
