Caslon GotischDesigner: José Alberto Mauricio
Publisher: Alter Littera
A loyal adjustment of the "Caslon-Gotisch" type gotten (among a number of other types) by D. Stempel A.G. in 1919 from the Leipzig printer Wilhelm E. Drugulin, and further established by Stempel in later years. In addition to the usual basic characters for typesetting in contemporary Western languages, the font includes a comprehensive set of unique characters, alternates and ligatures, plus Opentype functions, that can be utilized for typesetting as in antique writings and printings.

The primary sources utilized throughout the font design process were as follows: A sample page from Typographische Mitteilungen - XXIII Jahrgang - Heft 2 (1926 ), and a sample page from Hendlmeier, W. (1994 ), Kunstwerke der Schrift, Hannover: Bund für Deutsche Schrift und Sprache (p. 37).

Specimen, detailed character map, OpenType functions, and font style samples offered at Alter Littera's The Oldtype "Caslon Gotisch" Font Page.
