The three largest sizes of type made by the Caslon foundry are strangely unlike the famously consistent text faces cut by William Caslon. Perhaps they were the work of other hands - or of the master in a funky mood. Caslon’s text types have often been revived, but the display sizes, forceful and a touch eccentric, have had no digital version until Matthew Carter’s Big Caslon. The face is meant for use at eighteen point & above; C&C 1994
Among other uses, Big Caslon is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
