Copperplate is to be respected

Greeting Comrades!
I often see blogs about a font face
people dislike with a zeal.
However, I never hear anything about
Copperplate and it's everywhere.
I once was told by a former Professor
that it's a respected font even though it's
overused. Don't get me wrong I like
Copperplate.

The lack of a true lowercase limits the usefulness of Copperplate, but for certain applications it has exactly the right balance of strength and grace. Also, it seems to work better than most fonts when set on a curved baseline, as on the perimeter of a circle (think Presidential seal).

It's a respected font no matter how many times it is used.
