Italian Old Style MT Pro
0

Hi guys, I would like to use this font for an important personal project.
It has got a good amount of glyphs, around 700. I like it because of its
roughness, but I’m not completely sure.

Could you guys express your opinion about it?
Have you any alternative for it?

Thank you,
Any doubts or strong opinion about it, will be well-accepted.

As a book typeface it is really charming. I’m just using it in a historical documentation but in a modern layout. The Italics are – well – Goudy-special, but interesting and eye-catching for headlines in body copy.
Go for it if you like it.
An alternative would be Kennerly.

They are both really nice. I think I have to do print test. Before anything. What about something more, let’s say well know. Like Grajon. What you think about it?

Do you mean ›Granjon‹? Well, this one is much ›cleaner‹ and up to this date probably the most widely used book typeface. It depends what you’re after.

I don’t know Italian old style seems to be the first choice, but I’m looking for some alternative. Like Jenson pro, Maxime, Tundra FF. Stuff warm, venetian inspired. This kind of stuff. Italian old style seems to ha ve a terrible detail.
