New Caledonia® font family


Designed by William A. Dwiggins in 1938
Alex Kaczun in 1982
Caledonia was designed by William A. Dwiggins in 1939 and originally appeared under the name Cornelia with the Mergenthaler typesetting machine factory in Berlin. Dwiggins conceived of this typeface as a reworking of the Scotch Roman which was designed for Mergenthaler Linotype in New York. The neotransitional Caledonia has serene, vertical forms, unflexed serifs, and a transitional style italic. Linotype reworked the typeface in 1982 and released it as New Caledonia. This large typeface family is perfect for large amounts of text due to the fine weight differences it allows. Caledonia's cool, classic look can be used in almost any application.
