Font of the Week

caslon-antique-font-of-the-week

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.

engravers-font-of-the-week

In 1902, Morris Fuller Benton and Robert Wiebking found themselves inspired by the hand carved fonts created by engravers of the past century. This style gave engravers a chance to show their extreme attention to detail while still creating a legible typeface. Thus, Engravers was born! This elegant font promotes the contrast between thick and thin strokes. Today, Engravers has found it’s home on invitations and in advertising work.
