Walbaum Buch or ITC Bodoni

Hi all,

If you would choose a 'romantic' high contrast serif typeface, which one would you go for: ITC Bodoni (12) or Walbaum Buch? I have a book set in Walbaum Buch, which is quite nice, but dark. I can't compare it to ITC Bodoni, but I heard it's good in text settings as well (better than any other Bodoni). What do you think? Or do you have other alternatives? Walbaum Text by Storm also seems pretty nice, but has a smaller x-height than the Buch, how would you rate it?

Thank you
