The 'wear and tear' on this font is designed to represent the pitting that occured, through exposure to the sea air, when Caslon's early fonts were sent to America.

This resulted in the somewhat patchy appearance of many early American documents.

Wow! I've never thought it was possible to make such font on FS. I can't find adjectives, I'm totally overwhelmed. Perfect demo pic. 10/10

the distressed/weathered look you have achieved is quite random and very unique, and an amazing technical milestone. while interesting at smaller sizes, its true beauty really shines when viewed larger. and your patience is on display as this looks like a rather painstaking process and at a 1:1 filter setting and a somewhat large grid size. this work can truly be compared to the craftsmanship of what typography entailed before the digital age. kudos.

Seamless, just seamless.
I thought that your typewriter old was awesome, but _this_, this is AWESOME.
I didn't think that a font could get this perfect. Seriously.

Truly magnificent. How long did you work on this font?
Comment by igorrossi 22nd February 2010
Cheers all.

@igorrossi: Ithink it took 3 or 4 days (on and off) to distress it.
