Old Claude was drawn by Paul Shaw to simulate an old cut of the classic (Claude) Garamond
type designs of the 16th & 17th centuries. The pronounced rough edges and coarse
letter shapes create the effect of letterpress printing with old foundry type onto
handmade paper. The companion Old Claude Expert includes small caps and old-style figures.
This "antiqued" design works equally well for both text and display.
