One of my favorite typefaces is Caslon Rounded, and for the longest time I’ve always dreamt up a fictional slab counterpart. It’s difficult enough to keep things narrow when you add serifs, but it’s a whole different ball game when you then round those serifs. While it may not fit seamlessly with Caslon Rounded, I think this still has a similar energy.

You can license a digitization of Caslon Rounded from Commercial Classics.
