I'm a student in college and I'm trying to figure what kinds of fonts I could use with this image.
I want to use three or two fonts that compliment this image. Im going for a 1950 look.
any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Alex Steinweiss and Jim Flora were fairly prolific album-cover designers in the 1950s...http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/whirled-peas-nf/http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/flora-dora-nf/
Or, you could go with the beatnik vibe..http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/oo-boodlio-doo-nf/http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/indubitably-nf/http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/boop-boop-nf/
The combination of this art with Oo-Boodlio-Doo would have a definite Ben Shahn vibe. Oo-Boodlio-Doo is inspired by Ad Lib, designed by Freeman Craw in 1961, and it's hard to imagine Craw wasn't influenced by Ben Shahn's distinctive handlettering. Here's an example from 1955.
Even more Ben Shahn-y...http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/outgribe-nf/
