Lydian

Lydian is a calligraphic, humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Warren Chappell and released through American Type Founders in 1938. It was famously used on the end credits for the television shows The Lucy Show and Here’s Lucy in the 1960s and 1970s. Lydian is popular with modern designers looking for a classic, retro feel.
