Caslon Ionic

Launched earlier this year, Commercial Classics is the new sister foundry of Commercial Type, focusing on the revival of historical typefaces. Their latest release, Caslon Ionic, is based off the design of the text version of Caslon's Ionic No. 2, introduced in the 1860s. From this source, designers Paul Barnes and Greg Gazdowicz created a family in four weights, with matching italics. In addition, the designers resized Antique No. 6 to work as an alternative Bold weight for the typeface (pictured above).

What should I pair it with? Caslon Ionic was designed for text, and used as such, it is a perfect companion to Caslon Doric and its many display styles.
