In 1720, William Caslon, an engraver of firearms from the West Midlands, started his career in type design when he created a typeface for the New Testament in Arabic. During the 1914-18 Great War many of the Caslon Type Casting machines were turned over to producing bullets for the British Army. Caslon® Limited spent 282 happy (and sometimes not so happy years) in London’s EC1 district occupying premises in Chiswell Street, Aylesbury Street and Bakers Row before making the move in 2002 to its current location in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
Caslon®Limited has been supplying printers with innovative profit making products since 1720 when William Caslon first cut the typeface that bears his name.
