Caslon font is a group of serif typefaces designed by William Caslon I in 1722 in London. It was used extensively throughout the British Empire in the early eighteenth century. Caslon Font was popular in the nineteenth century, particularly for setting printed body text and books. Caslon Font fell out of favor soon after the U.S. Declaration of Independence and revived at various times since then, particularly during the British Arts and Crafts movement. Nowadays, it continues to be a standard in typography.
