I'm sure this has been a thread at some point, but doing a search didn't show me what I was looking for, so if I just need to be redirected, go for it. :-)
The situation is this- I have a book I need to format for someone (my dad actually) and am already stuck- trying to decide what font to use!
The only info I'm beginning with is that I'd like to use serif, having heard more than once that sans serif is inadvisable for books.
I would like to give a better idea of what I'm looking for, but my ignorance has got the best of me here. The book is non-fiction, essentially about ethics, society, agnosticism, serious schtuff like that. :-)
So if anyone has suggestions of fonts I can try, I'm all ears. I'm also open to suggestions regarding books about fonts for books, but that is more long term, as I need to begin formatting this book yesterday.
Thanks for any advice you can give,
