Perhaps something by Underware - Dolly and Auto? Sauna?
I like the different weights of Dax......although I haven't read the whole thread !
I love the construction of Dolly, but I think it's too intimate.
Dunno about Dax or Baskerville for titling. Monotype Baskerville in particular is one of the types that most depresses me when I open a mail-ordered book, and though there are now some really good Baskervilles I find them a bit monotonously broad.
Gio, what's you prefered choice at the moment?
Yes, the typical Baskerville lc "a" is infinitely depressing.
Hi Andrew, so far, and a bit embarrassingly after so many helpful suggestions, it's Haarlemmer Sans and Dante MT.
What's that font, Hrant? And was the MT Baskerville 'a' some kind of intern's private joke, or was there a fantastic jog to a slide-rule somewhere along the line?
That's Patria's Italic.
For that setting I might actually try tilting the bar of the "H"
to match the bar in the "e". It might look quite... uplifting.
I don't know what caused Monotype to make such an ugly
glyph. In the original Baskerville the "a" isn't great, but
it's not so blatantly pig-faced.
"Healium" is brilliant. :-)
Is Patria available for purchase? I certainly like what I see . . .
Patria is available for purchase, and I've sold a few copies, but it's technically
not finished yet; I expect it to be finished by next year's special type issue of Eye
magazine. However, anybody buying now gets a free upgrade to any future
versions, as well as the ability to influence future versions.
