Castellar font family


John Peters drew Castellar in 1957 for Monotype when phototypesetting was in its infancy, well before the first laser printer appeared. This typeface, designed for titles, cannot, unlike Monotype's Centaur, be used for anything else. If you print Castellar in too small a size on a laser printer with a resolution of 300 dots per inch, watch out! And if that doesn't discourage you from misusing the typeface, nothing will. Stay above 24 points, and you'll be safe.
