Clarendon

Clarendon is a slab serif typeface originally designed by Robert Besley in 1845. It was the very first typeface to be patented, although the patent expired after three years so it was quickly copied by other foundries. Clarendon was commonly used on wanted posters of the American Old West so it can have somewhat of a classic, “old-timey” feel to it. The typeface is available in five weights—light, roman, heavy, bold and black—as well as condensed styles.
