From: Lewis, Bernard. Behind the Type: The Life Story of Frederic W. Goudy. Pittsburgh, PA: (Department of Printing, Carnegie Institute of Technology, 1941.) : 44. Public domain; scanned by me from the original.

This image shows Goudy at his desk, involved in paperwork - which is what the "front matter" of a book is, after all.
