A bolder version of Big Caslon?

Can someone please tell me the name of this lovely serif from the magazine House & Garden? It really does look like Big Caslon but in a bold or black version, that I haven't been able to find.

(The sans is Gotham in case (probably not) someone was wondering)

The more I look at it, the more I'm sure that it is indeed a bolder version of Big Caslon. Does anyone know where it's from?

There are a couple extra weights of Big Caslon (plus italics) that have been developed custom for various publications. Your image looks like the Black weight.

The updated, expanded series is scheduled for Retail release from FB later this year. Here’s a screenshot from the upcoming supplement to FB’s One-Line Specimen:
