About

F37 Caslon is a love letter to one of the great British fonts. Does the world really need another cut of Caslon? We think so.

F37 Caslon is our personal take on a stone-cold classic. Originally designed by William Caslon in 1726, this old-style serif has fascinated typographers ever since. Over the years, the font has been tweaked, reworked, modernised, pulled, stretched, squashed and embellished, as successive generations have created their own versions of Caslon, particular to their times and tastes.

We’ve taken the best of these seminal Caslon revisions to create our own ‘super family’ in a huge range of weights and styles. Our cut features a tall x-height, old-style numerals, capital italic swashes, ligatures and discretionary ligatures. Elegant and extensive, F37 Caslon is perfect for editorial, book covers, logos, branding, and more.

Caslon was the font that first turned us on to typography. It’s taken years of chipping away… and now finally, our homage is complete.

    William Caslon I (1692/1693 – 23 January 1766), also known as William Caslon the Elder, was an English typefounder. The distinction and legibility of his type secured him the patronage of the leading printers of the day in England and on the continent. His typefaces transformed English type design and first established an English national typographic style. Caslon was born in Cradley, Worcestershire in 1692 or 1693 and trained as an engraver in nearby Birmingham. In 1716, he started business in London as an engraver of gun locks and barrels and as a bookbinder's tool cutter. Having contact with printers, he was induced to fit up a type foundry, largely through the encouragement of William Bowyer.

    William Caslon I (1692/1693 – 23 January 1766), also known as William Caslon the Elder, was an English typefounder. The distinction and legibility of his type secured him the patronage of the leading printers of the day in England and on the continent. His typefaces transformed English type design and first established an English national typographic style. Caslon was born in Cradley, Worcestershire in 1692 or 1693 and trained as an engraver in nearby Birmingham. In 1716, he started business in London as an engraver of gun locks and barrels and as a bookbinder's tool cutter. Having contact with printers, he was induced to fit up a type foundry, largely through the encouragement of William Bowyer.
