Looking for free match for Caslon font

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi. I'm beginning to typeset a book for the first time. I've looked into which font to use and I'm inclined to go along with a recommendation I came across online to use Caslon for text books. I looked at the Google fonts and thought that Crimson looks very similar, which is one of the fonts that had already caught my eye. 

I'm hoping to get some advice about this. For example, does anyone think there is a better match on Google fonts. (I think Caslon Libre is more attractive than Adobe Caslon, so perhaps something like that.) Also, if anyone has any thoughts about which font suits non-fiction books I'd be very grateful to hear about them.

Actually, this font looks very similar to me and looks really good, I think. Does anyone know what it is and whether it is free for commercial use?

Many thanks. Best wishes,

Sorry - had remembered the name of the font incorrectly and written 'Carson'!
