Linotype Clascon is part of the TakeType Library, which features winners of Linotype's International Digital Type Design Contest. Designed by the British artist Rachel Botha, the constructed forms of the capitals are reminiscent of sketches of many famous 16th century artists, Albrecht Dürer and Nicolas Jaugeon among them. This style emphasizes the mathematic construction of the letters, based on the circle, rectangle and triangle, but Clascon's historical roots lie in Transitional and Modern Face styles. This font is particularly suited to very short texts, headlines and initials.
