Caslon Antique Font


Introducing Caslon Antique Serif Font is a decorative American typeface that was designed in 1894 by Berne Nadall. It was originally called “Fifteenth Century”, but was renamed “Caslon Antique” by Nadall’s foundry, Barnhart Bros. & Spindler, in the mid-1920s. The design of the typeface is meant to evoke the Colonial era. Early printers would reuse metal type over and over again, and the faces would become chipped and damaged from use. Caslon Antique emulates this look.

Despite the name, it is not a member of the Caslon family of typefaces. The renaming is believed to have been a marketing maneuver to boost the popularity of a previously unpopular typeface by associating it with the highly popular Caslon types. An italic variant of the font is also available. In addition to versions available under the traditional name, Corel produces its own version of the font under the name “Casablanca Antique.”

This font is free for PERSONAL AND COMMERCIAL USE.
