The Bitstream version of Caslon 540 of the American Type Founders, 1902.

Strokes in Caslon fonts are somewhat heavier than in earlier Old Style fonts, serifs are thicker and a bit stubby. Italic letters have uneven slope. A text set in Caslon looks legible and aesthetically appealing. Caslon is a favorite font of English printers for setting of classical literature.
Cyrillic version was developed for ParaType in 2002 by Isay Slutsker and Manvel Shmavonyan.
