21st Century Caslon

Thought I'd mine the knowledge of you experts for some counsel.
I'm currently on the hunt for a potential replacement for Adobe Caslon for magazine body copy.

We'd like to have something a little narrower ideally, to save space, and it would be nice to freshen up the characters. I've done what has felt like a lot of research, but have come up disappointed by the lack of Caslon-esque oldstyle faces available—especially in a useful range of weights. I think the closest thing I've come to an enjoyable solution is Sabon Next.

Anyone have other ideas or info about anything being currently worked on?

Appreciate any direction

Williams Caslon happens to have been designed by a participant in these forums, and it is also worthy of consideration.

Sabon Next would be a 21st Century Garamond, so whatever its merits, it is not what you seek.
