Designed during the early 1900s for the Stephenson Blake Typefoundry, Carlton has recently become a popular roman alphabet again. It is used extensively in display sizes when a discreet, elegant appearance is needed. Carlton’s qualities are maximised by generous letter and word spacing.
The letterforms of this refined Roman typeface are simply and gracefully structured. The lowercase with its small x-height and long slender ascenders project a look of stately elegance. Excellent for a variety of headline applications where a polished, feminine appearance is desired. Created by English type designer Paul Hickson.
An extravagant set of initial capitals have been added to this classic roman italic typeface to complement the lowercase letterforms. Like all great roman typefaces, Caslon 540 Italic exudes grandeur and is beautifully suited to work requiring an elegant effect. The swashes were created by talented designer Freda Sack in the Letraset Type Studio.
This excitng new brush script can be used on its own or with the simulated ink splats and smudges included with the font. Designed in the Letraset Type Studio by Andrew Smith, Smudger is at the leading edge of modern display type design due to its loose, unstructured letterforms. It will produce a powerful visual effect wherever a bold, dashing headline is needed.
