I am curious about peoples opinions and experiences. Just a hypothetical question: if you were to choose a typeface for a novel in the creepy genre, what would you use? There are elements of fantasy in the storytelling, but also quite some chill factor in the creepy sense.
My feeling was going towards something with edgy serifs, higher contrast, nothing rounded at least. It should be comfortable to read, yet leave an unsettling hint? Walbaum, perhaps?
