I am currently re-designing a scientific/business magazine which has a very high word count. 1000 words + heads and images per A4 (UK) page.
In an attempt to give myself maximum designing space, I have been seeking a body copy serif font that will give a high word count whilst achieving good clarity and readability. To get the project off the ground have found that a version of Simoncini Garamond at 9/9.5 is OK, however have a budget to buy something offering an even better word count.
Just wanted some advice on what other people are using or have experienced in similar situations.
Have got it in my head that something like HTF Mercury might be the answer?
