Big Caslon cursive ...from where?

Do you know the beautiful cover design created by Paul Barnes for SchirmerGraf publishers? I think he uses Big Caslon roman and italic. Anyone knows where is Big Caslon italic available? Many thanks

Hi Carlos,

a search on Typophile brought up these threads:
Big Caslon italic
Swashy italic in Wallpaper - Big Caslon Italic
Big Caslon-like serif face on Penguin Books cover

What John Nolan said: See http://www.carterandcone.com/ for contact info.

Another option is Caslon 540 Italic with Swahes. You can access the swash z with the ‘+’ key, the f with long descender is hidden behind the ‘®’ (Gosh, do I love OpenType!).

Thank you very much, Florian. I made a search before posting,
but obviously didn't make it well...
