I'm currently doing a project where I am creating a Victoria era book. Whilst it does not need to be totally faithful to the designs of that time I'd like to make sure it has the correct feel.
As you all seem to know much more than me on this forum can you recommend any good typefaces to use for the body copy of the book? I've been looking through many books in the local library to understand the style, typographical features, punctuation etc but am not sure of the names of fonts.
Also do you have any suggestions on how to recreate the look of the printed text on screen?
