Serif and Sans Combo for a Two-Column Science Book
0

I'm going thru my type library, intent on using types I've not used in, like, forever, if ever. Though I love Univers--and I believe this book will have scientific formulae in it--with an Old Style serif--I also like the idea of trying something I've had around forever, but just never got around to using, Stone Serif and Stone Sans. But I'm concerned about the narrow width of the text column, a touch less than 20p. I'm figuring a generous leading, but would still like something that fits well, in a compact kind of way (but, of course, not a Times) without looking jammed in.

Thank you.

This is my immediate, immature thought: Scala/Scala Sans.

It seems like this would have to depend on the formulae. If they require any complex math setting, there really aren't very many options. Minion is fairly compact and has a math companion.
