Caslon Doric Outline Font Family
With a delicate outline and slight shading Caslon Doric Outline is subtle demonstration of a shaded typeface. Based on Caslon’s Doric an all capital normal width of sans, the outline was a simple variant of cutting a key line around the form with a slight swelling to give the impression of shading. Like Blake & Stephenson Shaded Sans, it is form designed to allow the printer to imitate the skilled engraver. First appearing in the 1840s, the addition of layering allowing two colour effects offer designers today an elegantly distinguished all capital form.
