New Caledonia font family

The Scotch Roman faces of the 19th century were quite rightly a very popular family of faces, some being also particularly elegant. In 1938, Dwiggins made this modern design for the Linotype Company, and Caledonia soon achieved the popularity it deserved. There was a time after World War II when it was hard to find any magazine in the United States that was not set in New Caledonia. Just as Times New Roman was the most used Monotype text face, Caledonia was the staple of Linotype users. Caledonia, you will remember, is the poetic name of Scotland made famous perhaps by the couplet of Sir Walter Scott that says, "Oh Caledonia, stern and wild, meet nurse for a poetic child!"
