I'm a final year Graphic Design Student working on a Final Major project. I'm redesigning a book most of you will know; G u l l i v e r ' s T r a v e l s . I'm choosing a typeface/font, and wanted some advice as to what would be best..
The story is based in the 1800s, the book reads in the first person. Gulliver is educated, has a passion for voyage and shows no Emotion - A suitable typeface, in my opinion, would be a Sans Serif, possibly found in Geography text books?
Another option could be - Serif typeface found in Dictionaries from the 1800s?
Another - A readable, monotone, Serif typeface from that period?
Any suggestions welcome..
Thanks for reading!
