New-Old Font Caslon

Posted on 30 juillet 2010


Caslon is a very high legible font for books (« une belle police de labeur« , JNM). Picking from one meadow to another, TypOL harvests here a discussion about authenticity and renovation be it ancient music, painting or architecture : long live, Caslon !

The interest is twofold to the least : for the typo-nerds (at whom iLoveTypography aims) and for the history-inclined mind -sometimes both present in one body-.

Later edit – The second part of the post on Caslon (@iLT) is as readable.
