Font pairing for Maiola
0

Hello Typophiles,

I'm designing a book using Maiola as the main typeface. The book is an essay on the nature & purpose of art and an analysis of a few key pieces from different traditions: a Lohan, an ancient Egyptian sculpture, a Vermeer, a Rembrandt, etc. I feel the Czech references in Maiola suit the author and his conversational style. I also think it's a fine typeface.

I'm using Maiola throughout, but for captions, space is limited. I'd like to use a condensed sans, but I'm struggling to find something that really complements Maiola.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks

I've paired Maiola with Akzidenz Grotesk in the past. It's probably not the best way to go in your case though. Axia seems a very good choice. Nice typeface.

Thanks to you both.

I will take a good look at Axia.
