DAVID LANCE GOINES (born May 29, 1945) is an American artist, calligrapher, typographer, printing entrepreneur, and author. During the 1960s, while a student in classical literature at the University of California, Berkeley, he participated in the Free Speech Movement of 1964, which led to his expulsion. Though soon re-admitted, he again left the University in 1965, this time to apprentice as a printer in Berkeley. In 1968 he founded Saint Hieronymus Press, where the major output consisted of Goines’ limited-edition poster and calendar art. In 1982, Goines published the calligraphic classic A Constructed Roman Alphabet, which won the 1983 American Book Award. Several books collecting his poster art have been published as well.
Goines has enjoyed with the restaurateur Alice Waters since both were teenagers. Every year, Goines creates a Chez Panisse anniversary poster and has illustrated many Chez Panisse cookbooks. Chez Panisse is a Berkeley restaurant known as one of the inspirations for the California cuisine style of cooking.
