display pairing for Berkeley Oldstyle?
0

Designing an earth science book for grades 6-8. Berkeley Oldstyle for text is a must, as is Metaplus bold for captions and sidebars. What I can play with are the chapter heads and drop caps. Suggestions are more than welcome.

I hope someone else is editing this textbook. You spelled Berkeley two different ways, both of them missing an e.

Sorry. Too many long days and late nights. I picked up the name from the style guide they provided to me--I should have double-checked it before posting.

I'd use just use LTC Californian or Californian FB; two more "authentic" cuts of Berkeley.

Berkeley Oldstyle is a pretty good display face.
It was used a lot in the 1980s for that, set tight.
