I've got a brief to make a small book/booklet in the style of a "Dockers Workbook" celebrating one man (union leader Walt Cunningham's) life on the docks of Hull between 1950's-1980's.
i have been looking everywhere for a nice clear legible serif typeface to use for my body copy , i found one that i loved FF Scala Pro Regular http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/downloads/fontfont/ff_scala_pro/ it works n perfectly with the ethos of my type having been use in books depicting democratic revolutions/movements and in Museum booklets.The elegance of this typeface is exactly what i need but don't have the € 299.00 to purchase it on a student's income.
I was wondering if anyone had any alternatives to FF Scala with a more friendly price tag. or any other typeface what would communicate perfectly the struggles of a working class movement which have been in mostly forgotten.
Thanks for any response
