Publisher: Linotype
The Englishman William Caslon (1672-1766) first cut his typeface Caslon in 1725. His significant impacts were the Dutch designers Christoffel van Dijcks and Dirck Voskens. The Caslon font was long understood as the script of kings, although on the other side of the political spectrum, the Americans utilized it as well for their Statement of Self-reliance. The attributes of the earlier Renaissance typefaces are just hardly noticeable. The serifs are finer and the axis of the curvature is almost or totally vertical. The overall impression which Caslon makes is major, sophisticated and linear. Next to Baskerville, Caslon is known as the personification of the English Baroque-Antiqua and has actually gone through various brand-new interpretations, suggesting that every Caslon is a little various. The Caslon of Carol Twombly appeared with Adobe in 1990. It is a substantial font style, including, beside the standard alphabet, alternates for some lower case letters, small caps, swash letter, professional fonts and ornaments. It is fairly true to the initial Caslon, although this interpretation is better matched to longer texts. Adobe Caslon, with its ligatures, old style figures and swash letters, makes a classy and classic impression.
