Caslon Antique was created by Berne Nadal in 1894 to pay homage to the metal type printers that were used over and over again, causing the elements to become damaged and chipped. Caslon Antique bares no relation to the popular Caslon font family and was only named such in an attempt to boost it’s popularity. Where have you seen this spooky font? Between plays, musicals, and video games, you’re sure to have seen Caslon Antique a time or two.
