Homer Price is a children's book written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey. The book is a collection of stories set in the small town of Centerburg, Ohio, and centers around the adventures of a young boy named Homer Price. The title Homer Price on the book cover is very similar to a calligraphic sans serif called Lydian, designed by Warren Chappell.
The Lydian font comes in two weights, Regular and Bold, both with italics. You can view and download the font here.
