Designed by Tom Carnase in the late 1960s (used already in 1969), originally for LSC and known as LSC Caslon [ad]. It was available with short or long ascenders, an alternate angled ‘e’, and several swashes.
The ITC name comes from the street number of Lubalin, Smith, Carnase’s studio address: 223 East, 31st Street. Ed Benguiat’s ITC Caslon No. 224 followed as a text companion. [U&lc, Vol 17, No 1.]
The roman was digitized by Claude Pelletier as Caslon CP (2016, swash glyphs added in 2018).
