Alternative to Perpetua
0

I did a booklet using Perpetua, client loved it. They are now doing a similar booklet, different event. They want a similar look but want to use a different font. They liked the clean, classic yet edgy look. I hoping to find a font with similar characteristics. There is a lot of text and several tables so the slightly compressed character width was very helpful as well. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

By edgy I assume you mean epigraphic quality of the letterforms. ;^)

I think Warnock has bit of that.

Thanks for the reply. The words of my client in defining edgy were, "It looks traditional and modern at the same time, legible and clean."

Warnock is a good idea.

Aries is worth a look, and straying further afield, look at Arnhem. Look at Arnhem Fine, and you'll see the relation.
