Font combination with Antique Olive Compact
0

Any recommendations for a body copy typeface to go with my display type of Antique Olive Compact? It's for a student project on a book on John Coltrane. The display type is never on the same page as the body copy but I tried Helvetica Neue and it's not working well.

Thanks for any help!

Helvetica Neue doesn't even work well with Helvetica Neue...

Try FF-Balance.

Maybe Vendôme, also from Fonderie Olive? You could also have a look at the types of Typofonderie and Jean-Baptiste Levée / Bureau des Affairs Typographiques.

Fonts In Use have some examples of Antique Olive in use alongside a text face.
