After Stephenson Blake acquired the Reed foundry, Clarendon came with it. In 1956, the company refreshed and expanded the family as Consort. The Bold is based on the original 1845 Clarendon [Millington 2002]. An italic credited to Peter Bell followed in 1958 [Reichardt 2011]. Punch-cut proportionally for each size (there were no compromises as with other pantographed clarendons) [Miklavčič].
Red Rooster revived the Condensed in 1994 (used for sample), but some letters differ significantly from the metal originals (‘g’, ‘7’, titles).
