Choice of Caslon

A typophile discussion on the choice of Caslon centers around these digital possibilities:

  • Caslon 540 BT (Bitstream). See also the Paratype extension by Isay Slutsker. Adobe, Linotype, URW and others have their own Caslon 540, usually only in two styles, roman and italic. XCaslon 540 was originally done by ATF in 1902. Caslon 3 is a slightly bolder ATF face, dated 1905.
  • King's Caslon (Dalton Maag).
  • William's Caslon, by William Berkson, Font Bureau, 2010.
  • ITC Founder's Caslon by Justin Howes: faithful to Caslon's metal types.
  • Berthold Caslon Book BE (Berthold).
  • Adobe Caslon: preferred by several typophiles over the Berthold version. It is lighter and has longer descenders. People say it performs optimally at around 10-12 point. Some claim that Bertold's Caslon is better at smaller point sizes (8pt).
