Caslon Open Face font was des­gined by Barn­hart Brothers and Spindler in 1915. It was ini­tially colled Col­lege Old­style and based on Le Moreau de Je­une from G. Peignot foundry. Its re­al­tion to the clas­si­cal Caslon font fam­ily is rather dis­tant. Nev­er­the­less it is a nice ti­tling and dis­play font. Adobe sells OTF ver­sion of this font, but other ver­sions, in­clud­ing Type 1 are still avail­able from other ven­dors, in­clud­ing http://www.fonts.com. Note that there are many ``free'' vari­ants of this font avail­able for down­load­ing on var­i­ous sites; I chose not to use them be­cause of un­clear li­cense sta­tus. While mod­ern en­gines like XeTeX and LuaTeX can use sys­tem fonts di­rectly, the in­stal­la­tion base of the other sys­tems is huge, so it might be worth­wile to re­lease sup­port files.
