Textism: Caslon

Of the many digitizations of Caslon (by William Caslon, 1734-1770), Textism recommends Adobe Caslon, done by Carol Twombly: Sturdy, plain, highly functional, Adobe Caslon is probably the most flexible and usable of the many fonts based on William Caslon's types, which were wildly successful throughout England in the mid-18th century. There is a whiff of the Gothic in these letterforms: it vacillates between the beautiful and the ugly; there's also a risk of text set in it going to sludge. In my experience Adobe Caslon benefits from generous leading, and light-handed use.
