I’m designing layouts for a coﬀee-table book of very organic photomontages of the rainforest. Some images have text incorporated in them, and some may even have text that spills onto the page.
I’m not a typographer by any means; but I love type and I’d so appreciate suggestions for a text face that could complement such images. Something versatile, with a nice big family? Flourishes… It may (or may not) even be appropriate to experiment with ﬂeurons (mmm…ﬂeurons…) to complement the face.
Something like ITC Galliard? Anything by Lanston Type ? (divine ﬂeurons!!!) I love their Jenson Oldstyle but I think I need something with true italics.
Any suggestions you could give would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Coffee-table book fonts?
