Clarendon Font


Clarendon will be the title of the slab-serif typeface which was introduced in 1845 by Thorowgood and Co. (or Thorowgood and Besley) of London, a letter foundry typically known as the Fann Avenue Foundry.

The original Clarendon design is credited to Robert Besley, a lover inside the foundry, and was initially engraved by punchcutter Benjamin Fox, who can also have contributed to its design and style.

Numerous copies, adaptations and revivals are actually introduced, turning into practically an entire genre of type style and design.

Clarendons have a very bold, reliable construction, equivalent in letter structure to your “modern” serif typefaces well-known inside the nineteenth century for human body textual content (by way of example demonstrating an ‘R’ that has a curled leg and ball terminals within the ‘a’ and ‘c’), but bolder and with fewer contrast in stroke excess weight.

Clarendon layouts frequently have got a structure with bracketed serifs, which become much larger as they achieve the primary stroke with the letter.
