New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
after going through the Lopez link bj just provided I hoped onto some search engines, in search of his name associated to Caslon anywhere else, didn't see it, but.
I find it hilarious how many people claim to have designed 'Caslon', not mentioning its a variation:
Adobe/Afga Caslon yet normally referred to as Adobe Caslon (so that's ok)
Lopez and his Calson
Omnibus Typografi's Calson
of course William Caslon's Caslon
I'm sure the list goes on
of course this isin't to mention the weights, and alternates each has within their own families
Perhaps there should be a category for the classics now in classification, listed by designer and year they were altered. I now have absolutely no idea who did Caslon 540, thought I thought it was an Adobe.
anyone have another example of this happening to other classics?
