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.

Even more Ben Shahn-y...http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/outgribe-nf/
