Designer sent comps for a site using copperplate, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good alternative that exists either on google fonts or as a font squirrel kit (preferably the former).
Thanks in advance
Here is an alternative. Not perfect, but close to Copperplate.
To answer my own question, the font we decided to use is
We use it as a backup if the user doesn't have any of the main copperplate families on their machine.
thanks for your help.
The alternatives presented in other answers don't resemble Copperplate very closely, mainly in geometry. A hybrid approach would be to include Copperplate at the top of your font stack and use fallbacks. According to cssfontstack.com, Copperplate is installed on the majority of Windows and Macintosh computers. http://www.cssfontstack.com/Copperplate
I came here looking for ideas and this is the approach I'm going to take with a similar problem.
I tried Libre Baskerville and increased the font spacing to 1px and I feel it is fairly close.
