anyone know any modern font that is similar to Clarendon?
tried lubalin graph, looking for something more round
I would recommend Jubilat, it has 3 different "forms" for some of the characters, and definitely has a Clarendon flavor.
archer is super nice
Fits the spec.

Parry from OpenType is very nice.
But my most favorite Clarendon face is Ionic by Matthew Carter.
Kerned to perfection!!!
PS... the lowercase a is my favorite
> more round
Can you be more specific?
Including Italic versions and Bold variations, Belizio from FontBureau is probably the closest and most complete alternative to Clarendon.
The new Cassia by Hoftype is a “classical” slab serif with a softer touch to it. It is more a play on the genre, as a strict substitute however.
Eames Century Modern
I agree with Stephen, Eames Century Modern.
Chronicle from H&FJ also might not be a bad typeface.
Speaking of Carter’s Ionic, where is it possible to purchase it ?
If “round” means less rigid or playful, then Farao, http://www.stormtype.com/family-farao.html
H&FJ Sentinel .
If would like to purchase Mathew Carter’s Ionic, contact Cherie Cone at http://carterandcone.com/
I'd like to second the suggestions of Eames Century Modern and HFJ Sentinel.
@looking for something more round
Don't forget Egyptian 505.
