New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm working on my first book for children (with the text integrated in the full-page illustrations - usually, the illustration has left room for the text with a uniform colour or texture of some sort).
I might have more of these kind of jobs, so I'm on the lookout for fonts suitable for children's books (both display and text-fonts). I searched the forum, but it seems that nobody has discussed this before, so I'm looking forward to see what people think about it.
A personal preference: I wouldn't like to stereotypical fonts that could risk "talking down" to the children. In other words, being too childish. Also, I'm aware that the suitability of any font depends on the specific story, but my goal here is just to brainstorm away and create a whole bunch of inspiration!
Would Bello in small caps work for display text? My intuition tells me it would suit for young boys.
