Caxton

Caxton is a serif typeface designed by Les Usherwood in 1981. It is named after William Caxton, a fifteenth century English printer. The design has a very organic feel, especially noticeable in the concave shapes of the serifs and the diamond-shaped dot on the i. It has a very large x-height for a serif so it would work well for setting body text.
