    Sweet, neat and petite. I love the proportionally-condensed elegance of this. Who is the maker of those quirly fonts?

    Like the italic A? That would be P22's Caslon Long Pro

    here are some links:

    Are you going to be at Typecon this year?
  • ebensorkin PRO 7y

    Yes, for sure.

    I was pestering you to go with your strong Canadian money! Any chance of that now?

    Speaking of which: This book a Canadian product.

    Thanks for the links. "This design is closer in spirit to the original Caslon." So says the P22/Lanston blurb. Closer in detail more like. They don't say exactly which Caslon roman is their "original" model. The P22 Lanston Caslon has the "Great Primer Roman" C. The Font Shop version shows the asymmetric English Roman C.

    I'm debating it. A couple of people I know will be there, including a woman I met at Typecon in Seattle last year. Our Canadian money isn't as strong as it once was. The cost of gasoline is cancelling out any advantage our dollar had.

    A Canadian product...you don't say!

    James, the best person to ask about that C would be Paul Hunt. He digitized the font.

    Christina, here's hoping I see you there!
