|This first printed version of the United States Declaration of Independence has Caslon typefaces|
The Caslon types fell out of favor in the century after his death, but were revived in the 1840s. Several revivals of the Caslon types are widely used today.
1- Short ascenders and descenders, bracketed serifs, moderately high contrast, robust texture, and moderate modulation of stroke.
2- A has a concave hollow at the apex, the G is without a spur.
3- Caslon's italics have a rhythmic calligraphic stroke. A, V, and W have an acute slant.
4- italics p, Q, v, w, and z all have a suggestion of a swash.
