Can anyone suggest an alternative to Copperplate Gothic for web use?


Question

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

Accepted Answer

To answer my own question, the font we decided to use is

Alegreya SC

http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Alegreya+SC

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.

Here is an alternative. Not perfect, but close to Copperplate.
