Which typeface goes well with Aperçu?
0

Hi typophiles, I could use some help decided on a great typeface combination.

I am a junior designer and am working on a book related to Dutch design. I am currently looking at different options for the typefaces I will use. I would really like to use Aperçu for the headlines, title, chapter openers etc, but need still need to decide on what to use for the body text. I thought it would be nice to use a dutch designed typeface, as it relates to the content, and so far I have been looking at Swift, DTL Documenta and Arnhem. Do you guys think these could fit with Aperçu at all? If not, do you have any other suggestions, it could be sans serif as well, although I was leaning more towards using a serif. (it doesn't have to be a dutch typeface, but it would be nice)

Hope you guys can give me some advice and maybe get a little discussion going :)

Here are some examples of Aperçu in use, in most cases paired with other typefaces:

Given the rich Dutch typographic tradition, I would have looked for a Dutch typeface, especially for the headings...

thanks for the replies guys,

do you have any specific recommendations riccard0? I'm looking for something fresh, preferably made by an exciting (new) type designer or studio.

One of the reasons I picked Apercu, is that there will also be an english involvement to the book, and using a typeface from either or even both countries would be a nice touch.

Aperçu is just like Piffi allround spice: goes with everything, but also tend to make it all taste exactly the same.
