I'm not actually writing a bachelor thesis about typography but I do want it to look nice, and above all easy to read.
What do you think about Merriweather set at 10 / 16 with an appropriate column width. http://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Merriweather
Also I'm looking for a cool sans-serif font that combines well with Merriweather for the chapter titles. I might use all caps. Any ideas?
