Caslon Doric Font designed by Paul Barnes is a nineteenth century sans-serif given the rigour, consistency and rationality of a modern sans family: of multiple weights, in multiple widths with matching italics, yet maintaining the charm of the original. As Brunel is the serif form we associate with this period, so Caslon Doric is the equivalent sans. After William Caslon IV, originated the sans type form in the second decade of the 19th century, the style initially stalled, and only in the 1830s did the form gain popularity.
First in an all bold capital form, Caslon introduced the Doric form in the 1840s, before expanding the style throughout the century, finally adding a lowercase which we would recognise in the 1870s. From the original regular weight the modern Caslon Doric expands from a fine hairline weight to an emphatic fat weight, with matching italics and small capitals. With its distinctive hook like terminals it has the utility of the sans form whilst having a distinctive quality and is suitable for text and display setting.
